OK.  So reading between the lines, I'm getting the impression that one of the important goals of an Acid-type test would be that it can be run by anyone -- end users, journalists, i.e., non-geeks.  They don't need to first download and install a JDK, ant, and a dozen XML tools first.   They just load the document in their editor and see how it looks.  But we may also have another set of tests (I've been calling them 'atomic tests') that are targeted to vendors and testing labs.
