Subject: Re: [office] Moving forward on Conformance

Hi Rob,

thank you for this summary. I think it very well describes the situation.

What I would like to add here is what you said in another mail, that is, 
that we must also consider that some more work regarding conformance is 
done in the OIC TC.

So here are my preferences.

My preference is B). The simple reason is that is appears to be 
difficult to define requirements for processors without specifying what 
their purpose is.

I actually could imagine that it may be much easier to define 
conformance for processors in the OIC TC, where we may define different 
classes of processors.

C would be my preference, too, but B is also acceptable.

I agree to this, too.
