Can I just add to what Dom says here - to say that we're delighted to hear that you are working on a checker. We'd strongly prefer that people base any work on the new initiative that Dom refers to below - rather than the existing implementation. Also as Dom says, we would very much welcome your participation in the work of the checker Task Force.

May thanks
