Public availability
===================
The test suite is publicly available under the W3C license.  Test 
Suite is well organized.  There
is a Java version and an ECMA Script version for each of the DOM levels.

Conformance / interoperability
==============================
The test suite is oriented towards conformance. Each test has a 
pointer to the specification's
section, which is evaluating.

coverage / test assertions availability
=======================================
Coverage looks quiet good. Found no assertions. There seems to be 543 
tests for the
DOM Core level 1.

mobile web relevance
====================
Test Suite even as stable as it may be is a number of years old.  Relevance to
Mobile not apparent at this time.

============
This test suite uses the browser as the harness (EcmaScript). Looks 
easy enough to run.
Did not run the Java version, however it looks very straightforward.

automated or not
================
Fairly automatic or easy enough to automate.

stability / status
==================
Test suite looks very stable.

maintenance process
===================
There is a mailing list and a number of documents explaining how to 
participate on the process.

Thanks,
