Subject: Re: [dita] No Conformance Section in the Architecture Spec

We have discussed the need for a conformance suite in the past, but judged out of scope for 1.0, 1.1, and at least initially for 1.2.

One possibility would be to create a separate subcommittee on conformance to work on a full definition of what a conforming DITA application means, so that work can proceed without holding up work on DITA 1.1 and DITA 1.2.

[dita] No Conformance Section in the Architecture Spec

There is currently no conformance section in the character spec and the
term "conformance" does not occur. There are statements of the form
"must conform to" which are implicit conformance statements but we have
no general statement of what is and is not a conforming DITA
application, document, and document type/declaration set. I think that
to be a proper standard we must have clear and formal statements to that
