    There is a nice concept of subsumption between XML trees here, though. :-)

    i think we knew what we meant when we invented the idea if "conformable", but I suggest that it has not caught on as a concept in the intervening years, and it may be simpler to drop it.

    [bugs:#634] "TEI-conformable" is meaningless

    This previous bug:

    http://sourceforge.net/p/tei/bugs/582/

    dealt with some inconsistencies in usage and formatting of "TEI-conformant" and "TEI-conformable", but it did not address the elephant in the room: "TEI-conformable", as it is defined, is meaningless:

    "A document is said to be TEI Conformable if it is a well-formed XML document which can be transformed algorithmically and automatically into a TEI Conformant document as defined above without loss of information."

    This applies to any XML document. Even extreme cases of documents containing no TEI-like information at all, any information can be represented using e.g. feature structures. I suggest we remove this phrase from the Guidelines, and thus substantially simplify the USE chapter.
