author - someone who uses a format while writing a page
document - a page that uses a format
authoring - writing a page using a format
implementor - someone who writes an application that consumes a format
implementing - writing an application that consumes a format
implementation - an application that consumes a format
user - someone who uses an application that consumes a format
consuming - the act of running an implementation on a document
