That wasn't _my_ intention.  However, I did intentionally separate the 
notion of conforming _applications_ from conforming _documents_. 
Perhaps that's the cause of your concern?

I'm concerned that this might create additional unintended requirements 
on documents.

Though I'll be honest, I'm having a little trouble visualizing what this 
would look like.

Can you point to one specific example and what you'd change it to?  That 
might help me understand the proposal better.
