I think that leaves us more free to include things that are best practice but not widely deployed (e.g. Client State Indications) that otherwise we’d have to argue about whether it’s reasonable to label something “non-conformant” because it doesn’t implement them, or whether it’s reasonable to include Experimental specs, while satisfying the main purpose for these suites of indicating which XEPs people should be implementing right now.

I like that idea too; makes me feel less weird about including the
"experimental" features which I none-the-less feel are essential, or
are widely deployed.
