This is a good idea but the Open Definition refers to all kinds of
knowledge, not just to data.

Declaring HTML, PDF and bitmap image formats non-conformant would impact
on OER and other key forms of Open Knowledge that are released e.g. as
videos or as web sites. They would either be declared non-Open or have
to wrap themselves in an xml fig-leaf.
