  <section1 topic='Introduction' anchor='intro'>
    <p>
      The &XSF; defines protocol suites for the purpose of compliance testing
      and software certification.
      This document specifies the 2017 compliance levels for XMPP clients and
      servers; it is hoped that this document will advance the state of the art,
      and provide guidence and eventual certification to XMPP client and server
      authors.
      Unless explicitly noted, support for the listed specifications is REQUIRED
      for compliance purposes.
      A feature is considered supported if all comma separated feature providers
      listed in the "Providers" column are implemented (unless otherwise noted).
