SOURCE test case sketches from users, please?

I once again pleaded that we postpone SOURCE 'till next time,
and then took a straw poll which resulted in many "my users
want source" responses.

I'm still concerned that we won't find a SOURCE design that
meets the needs of all these users, but I just thought of
a way to manage that risk.

Would each WG member who has talked to some users who want
SOURCE please sketch a test case? I don't need you to get
every detail right at the first draft, but if, say, Kevin
knows some customer that wants SOURCE, I'd like our final
test repository to have a test case that his users
can point to and say "yes, that will work for us."

If you can base your test case sketch on a little bit of
*real data* from the users, that's great. If you have to
simulate it with example.com and such, that's not as great,
but it's still good.

If one of the tests that Dave is already working on
matches your users' usage patterns, I'd still prefer
that you copy the pattern and substitute the real vocabularies
and values and such that the users care about, but
I suppose responses of the form...
 The pigfarmer supply chain consortium's usage of SOURCE
is covered by an existing test

are more helpful than nothing.
