This is going great. However, as the test suite is being built we would
appreciate feedback from a specification verification perspective: are there
assertions made that are not testable or that could be better written, and
if there is much variability in the specification? These feedback is crucial
for Web Apps if we are to improve the quality of our specifications.

Unless you guys have a better way to do this, I would like to see the
specification follow the CSS2.1 Test Case Authoring Guidelines (even if
those guidelines are not complete).

The tests are now there. However, I think it makes more sense for if each
spec had it's own test suite. For example, tests for Widgets 1.0: Digital
Signatures would sit in 2006/waf/widgets-digsig/tests/, etc.

Kind regards,
Marcos
