(unofficial; just trying to speed things up)

I think the plan is to dual license the test suite - the W3C software 
license and the W3C Test Suite license.

The test suite license does not permit modification (which is kind of 
natural - the test suite is supposed to be a fixed reference point). So 
it is not an open source license [2] (no right to modify).

Being dual licensed, you can take it and modify it under the software 
license which is an open source license.

Does that work for you?

As the Turtle grammar is currently defined in LC, the syntax for 
literal had either a @lang xor a ^^datatype.

[128s] 	RDFLiteral 	::= 	String (LANGTAG | '^^' iri)?

The fact that in the data model there is a fixed datatype for a @lang is 
not reflected in the grammar.
