We solicit public feedback via issuing public review drafts.  If TC 
members have a view on this issue they can weigh in on this list.  If 
Murata-san wishes to express his views more directly, he is welcome to 
join the TC.  If you wish that his views be expressed directly in the TC, 
unfiltered through my guessing, then you are also welcome to suggest that 
he join.

I don't think you can determine that a priori.  But I'd suggest that any 
differences that are noted should be examined and understood.   You 
obviously cannot prove correctness via testing, but you certainly can 
prove error.  Of course, if someone has an easier method to prove 
correctness (and I think Patrick was looking for something) then that 
would be preferable.
