I'd judge the gradient issue as an atomic test. Tests one thing against
the standard. Just that it happens to be manual rather than automatic?

How can we correctly interpret 'user directives' unless they are in
the standard Sam? I'd say out of scope?

+1. Seems issue tracking is very hit and miss with this TC.
At least with docbook, another Oasis standard, they have bug tracking
and a log of RFE's at Sourceforge. ODF seems not to be able to
host such a service.
