C. M., Jonathan, Andrew, and co.:

A (mostly) verbatim version of the suggested text has been incorporated
into the editor's draft of the GRDDL Test Cases document - in the "Local
Policies, Faithful Rendition, and Conformance" section:

The GRDDL specification states that any transformation identified by an
author of a GRDDL source document will provide a Faithful Rendition of
the information expressed in the source document. The specification also
grants a GRDDL-aware agent the license to make a determination of
whether or not to apply a particular transformation guided by user
interaction, a local security policy, or the agent's capabilities. For
example, a GRDDL-aware agent may have a security policy that prevents it
from accessing GRDDL transformations located in untrusted domain names
or it may be unable to apply transformations given in a language it does
not support, and so it may be unable to produce the faithful rendition.

Furthermore, in addition to being GRDDL-aware, an agent may feature
optional capabilities such as locating a schema via mechanisms defined
in the W3C XML Schema specification [XMLSCHEMA]. Schemas identified this
way can become proxies for namespace documents that would normally be
identified by GRDDL and the result of applying the transformations
identified in these schemas may not be a faithful rendition. However, in
defining these tests it was assumed that the GRDDL-aware agent being
tested is using a security policy which does not prevent it from
applying transformations identified in each test, supports XSLT 1.0, and
does not rely on any capabilities outside those defined in the GRDDL
Specification. Such an agent should produce the GRDDL result associated
with each normative test, except as specified immediately below.
