Alternatively can servers that don't support federation be considered 
compliant with XMPP in any meaningful sense?

For instance the ojsxc[1] app in Nextcloud installs a minimal local
only xmpp server that seems to only support the jabber:iq:roster,
jabber:client, and vcard-temp namespaces.

XEP 387 has specialized client compliance suites, you could also
consider specifiying a server suite to specify what is needed to
"support federation".
