I do think that reminding the implementers that any non-normative
capabilities are explicitly not supported in the test-cases are not used
is not a unreasonable point to make, especially as its clear that some
users of GRDDL clients like the XSL/XQuery WG really want non-normative

I've been cc'ing the comments list and the editor on the every comment
or suggested change of text. I'm also not too attached to the particular
text I suggested, so if there's any other text changes that people in
the GRDDL WG find preferable, the GRDDL WG can suggest these changes to
XSL/XQuery WG and begin the cycle again.  We'll discuss this in our
telecon today.
