I'm worried about getting it wrong. :-)

I've reworded the paragraph like this:

  <p>Some conformance requirements are phrased as requirements on
  elements, attributes, methods or objects. Such requirements fall
  into two categories; those describing content model restrictions,
  and those describing implementatino behaviour. The former category
  of requirements are requirements on documents and authoring
  tools. The second category are requirements on user agents.</p>

Is that ok?

I've also reorganised the conf section to make it read better.

Things that are impossible just take longer.   `._.-(,_..'--(,_..'`-.;.'
