Subject: Configuration vs Specialization

The DITA declaration sets are designed to be configurable without 
otherwise changing the declarations or creating a new specialization 
layer. This is alluded to in various places but I think it would be 
useful to have a brief discussion of configuration, customization, and 
specialization at the beginning of the specialization section that makes 
the differences clear, both from a syntax and practice standpoint, and 
from a conformance standpoint.

For example, in the section "What is specialization?" it would be useful 
to at that point introduce the related concepts of configuration and 
customization and maybe have parallel topics on them at that level.
