It was only discussed in the brief meeting in San Jose where I shared my 
feelings about the work we did with XML conformance.

Right ... we haven't yet voted on the scope, but in my proposed 
deliverables I specifically left out a testing harness.  I believe our 
objective is solely to assemble, produce and publish the tests and the 
report ... nothing else.

I anticipate organizations like Carmelo's and Lynda's to validate our 
efforts by successfully using what we produce ... but at an arm's 
length.  It is very important to the committee that f they can successfully 
use what we've created, then we will have succeeded at our task.  I think 
with the new rules coming we may need a *third* organization to put our 
report into production use in order to claim acceptance ... but we'll 
address that when the time comes.

I do not see testing or certification or judgements to be at all in scope 
for our work.

This is my firm belief as well.

I agree!  The technology looks very interesting.
