Thanks! Your document on variability came in very handy, so thank you 
for producing that resource! It's and oldie, but a goodie!:).

Yes, I'll make sure I check those in.

Yes. This will happen automatically once I write some XHR magic...

Yes, Kai and I are maintaining separate xml files. Once we have finished 
writing tests, we will send those lists and tests to each other for 
verification. Verification means that the other person checks that what 
is claimed to be tested is tested properly and as atomically as 
possible. IFF a test passes verification, then it gets added to the 
master file:
