Shouldn't the testing for and decision about UAs having interoperable
implementations stay with the W3C based on the testing framework that
we set up?

I'm just concerned that if we only accept implementation reports by
the people that implement them, then we get biased statements that
we're not allowed to counter-check. Please don't take this as applying
to MS alone - I mean this as a general problem. What would stop any
browser from claiming that they implement interoperable support for
all HTML5 features unless there is an indepentent cross-check?

Silvia.
