Hi Sean,

Yes, now we catch the idea. We have thought in the idea expressed in
the diagram.

Yes, more or less. We have thought that some tests (named as non
declarative) can be executed in the pre-processor step and generate the
test outcome (info to add to the intermediate doc, e.g grammar errors).
In a following step the "declarative tests" would be executed through
the intermediate document via XPTAH expressions.

Yes, we would be very interested in it. (But we haven't asked for 
the developer account yet. Is Dom the person who we should talk to?). 
Before we begin to work in this code, we suggest having a stable version
of the intermediate document in order to define the necessary java code.
We can talk this in the next audio.
