This relates to how the Dimensions of Variability, of which "level" 
is one, are represented in the TAs. The above approach looks like 
you would have Level A assertions and Level B assertions, with xyz 
only being part of Level B. It is not necessary that all Level A 
assertions also be true for the "higher" level B, because a few may 
relate to reporting that Level B and its features are not supported. 

An alternate approach is to make the Level part of the structure 
of the assertion: 
Condition: Level is B or higher 
Condition: Receiver is SBS 
Condition: Sender is higher than SBS
