The nature of the recommendations, best practices, voluntary conformance and their relations are very unclear.

First of all, if conformance is voluntary, the whole ODI document does not have any value.

Secondly, in the 3.1 General Recommendations paragraph, content providers are advised to conform to only two recommendations of the total number, and discovery service providers only three.
