What we do as individuals to implement the test case requirements is our own business, not the TC's.  But it is entirely appropriate for this to occur. Think of the ODF TC.  We write a specification for an XML-based document format.  We do not officially write an implementation of that format.  But several of us do work for companies or with open source projects that do implement the standard.  I'd expect the same dynamic to occur with the OIIC TC.

Rewriting the ODF standard would be out of scope.  Or more properly, if we tried to put that into scope, I believe OASIS would balk at our proposed charter since it would then clearly overlap that of the existing ODF TC's.   However I don't think rewriting the ODF spec is necessary to meet our deliverables.
