If an implementation implements only a subset, can they claim to be conformant to the spec?  One advantage of levels is that a very minimal implementation might claim to be conformant at level 1 and a more complete implementation could claim to be conformant at level 2, or level 3, or whatever.  Levels or packages would also make it easier for a spreadsheet to declare what is required to read it (e.g. "level 2" or "basic plus package blarch").
