because often many users are confused: the different between conforming and reconforming.
the last is now a feature of N7. You change your edited project to update it to a newer cut version. that means, the changes and edits by reconforming are only with your project and the included clips and audio.
conforming means you add or replace matched audio files. the project changes aren’t edits and cuts, rather new referenced audio files to the existing clips. examples are replacing new mixed files in a project, pump up a dialog edit to the original field recordings / location sound (seperate boom and lavalier tracks), expand a edited music rough mix with the multi track recording etc… the meta data’s or the name structure in the audiofiles can be the matched icon.
this feature is a main feature in EDLtranslate. put into it EDLs by the film cutter, get the conformed track archive for Nuendo. it is very proofed by a lot of film dialog editors, recording engineers in classical music production and post production houses.
