Normative statements

Normative statements must be standalone; they should be able to be reused in ancillary documents and make sense. Below is an example of reworked content from the draft-comment topic:

DITA 1.3: Processing systems SHOULD provide a mechanism that causes the content of this element to be rendered in draft output only. By default, processors SHOULD strip them out to prevent publishing internal comments by mistake.

DITA 2.0: By default, processors SHOULD NOT render draft-comment elements. Processors SHOULD provide a mechanism that causes the content of the draft-comment element to be rendered in draft output only.
