Letters of conformance

Following the new publication of the QA framework, the issue of the letter codes used for the levels of conformance to this framework was raised.
A, Q, C, the question remains open.

See the thread : [1]

Flavors of conformance considered harmful

Following the first publication of the Specification guidelines, part of the QA framework, an issue was raised about the use/interest/danger of using different flavors of conformance, advised by the Spec. guideline #3.

Different levels of conformance are believed to be harmful for interoperability (arg. 1), but may be unavoidable, or necessary (arg.2) for modular technologies/specifications. The issue is opened, see the thread for details.
