That sounds like a normal, mainstream, liberal/progressive Catholic, not a conservative one.

A conservative seeks to conserve, so someone who thinks Vatican II is in continuity with past teaching believes it conserves the Church's teaching.

I think you're being too literal, too narrow in your use of "conservative." Words have denotations and connotations. You're using the dictionary definition, the denotation. 

The connotation of "conservative" is someone who is right-wing. I think the OP is asking about the right-wing of the Catholic mainstream. 

If I am not mistaken, the OP asked because a few of us (I was one of them) were using the term over the past few days on here.  And the definition that I offered is precisely what I had in mind as I used it.
"For the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries nor innovators, but traditionalists."
- Pope St. Pius X

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables."
- 2 Timothy 4:3-4

"Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying: That all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity."
- 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12
