Thanks for this Michael,

I've stripped down the distribution list a little before replying, but 
added Antonis Kukurikos who was the one who handled this (see how I 
quickly passed the buck there?) and Tim Boland who gave us a lot of 
advice wrt QA.

I agree that a single, interoperable vocabulary would be jolly useful 
for this. AIUI, Antonis looked at the SPARQL test cases and adapted 
that. He could just as easily have chosen a different one and perhaps 
ended up with something slightly different so some sort of commonality 
and guidance would clearly be useful.

That said, I would be grateful if such guidance were to be implemented 
in the future, rather than retrospectively!
