Still catching up on your email, I see.

I mentioned this work on the list several days ago:  http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/oiic-formation-discuss/200806/msg00859.html

Also, if you are not aware of it, the OpenDocument Fellowship also hosts an ODF Validator here: http://opendocumentfellowship.com/validator

These validators are not similar to our work.  Remember, we're not producing the code.  We're producing the specification that defines the test cases.  

What you see with these validators is more like the relationship of OpenOffice and KOffice when ODF was proposed.  The existence of applications in this space validates the need for standards to define their storage format.  Similarly, the existence of multiple tools claiming to test ODF conformance validates the need for the standardized output of the proposed OIIC TC.
