One required component of a conformance claim is "Scope of the claim (a URI, list of URI's, or a set of URIs defined by a regular expression)," and the examples each include a single URI. This, the Examples, and the Conformance Notes all fail to clarify whether citing a single URI implies conformance is claimed for that one web page (or equivalent), or all pages referenced by it, or all pages "beneath it" on the server. For example, does claiming conformance for http://telcor.example.com/nav/G7/intro.html mean that conformance is claimed just for that one page, or for all the pages it links to, or all the pages in the /nav/G7/ directory on the server, including or not including subdirectories? I suggest clarifying this and also including an example of a claim for an entire Web site or multi-page portion thereof.
We have completely rewritten the Conformance section. The format of this description is no longer specified. The corresponding required component is now:
4. A description of the URIs that the claim is being made for, including whether subdomains are included in the claim.
We have fixed the existing examples to clarify that the first applies to the entire site and the second applies only to the specific page. We have added examples to illustrate the use of boolean and regular expressions in a conformance statement.
