Hi Carmello,

Here is couple comments for "Device independent testing guidelines" 
document for structure and overview.

1.0 Overview

 > This document provide a set of guidelines for writing effective
 > and comprehensive tests for Mobile devices. They should be followed
 > as much as possible. These guidelines are intended for writing
 > mobile devices tests and should not be taken as general
 > guidelines for non mobile devices tests.

I believe in the overview we need to say about the purpose for this 
document, explain the problems  with testing with mobile device testing. 
The mobile devices have some restriction like simplified specification, 
little display, restricted input, weak processor. It should be mention 
in the overview.


 > 2.0 Guidelines

I believe Guidelines should be divided into different sections: test 
harness guidelines, test suite guidelines, guidelines for test 
documentation, guidelines for test sources, guidelines for interactive 
and automatic tests, guidelines for test review, guidelines test 
execution. Now these sections are mixed.

I believe we need to add link section to related documents. The glossary 
section is also helpful in it. I've reviewed "SVG Conformance Test Suite 
-- Test Builder's Manual" 
http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Test/svgTest-manual.htm
It may be useful to take it in account for document structure.


Thanks,
    Dmitri.
