Well, I didn't say that meeting the above criterion would be easy ;-).

Yes, I agree that would be useful and I can help with WebApps' specs.

(It may also be useful to include links to test suites for OSS implementations of the spec. For example, if Webkit or Gecko or some other OSS has a test suite for feature X, that data (plus a link to the test suite) could be included.)

Yes. Besides the ring test Tobie mentioned, is any other member of this group intending to contribute tests?
