What was the intent on the test cases?  Non-normative annex?  Or remove 
the altogether?  My preference would be to see all of this non-normative 
material live on in a cohesive form, either in an annex, or in a separate 
"Implementor's Guide" paper, not part of the standard.  But having it 
split into different places would not be that useful, I think.

What do others think?  Would it be worth moving the non-normative 
background information into a separate document, to be edited later, in 
the style of an "OpenFormula Implementor's Guide"?
