I'm appending a response I received from Victor Mote (who I believe may 
have created the Compliance page), which was submitted to the FOP-DEV 
list and may shed some light on the Compliance page problem (and 
possibly the other "CRITICAL" problems as well).

I think this means I'll have to find the FOP-ADDITIONS sections of the 
'old' xml-fop sitemap.xmap file and put those sections into a new 
sitemap.xmap. Hopefully I'm on the right track, and when I try to 
tackle this tomorrow I'll have better clarity on it.
