No, (3) needs to be revised to make clear that it refers to the
whole parser-XSLT-serializer chain, environment where run, etc.

I agree with Ken.

Which reminds me: we have a pending issue about where we will put
the correct-output files in the tree we deliver. The submission policy
could say something to the effect that we will preserve the directory
structure of the submitted stylesheets and data, but correct output
files and (later) parameter-setting files may be moved as needed.

We may want to inform the submitters that we ultimately need to
produce a unique fully-qualified-name for every test case.
