Ah yes. I have ample experience with this, having implemented my own
framework for parsing these tests and running them.

The issue here is that it is not (yet) adequate for updates, hence the question.

We're thinking along similar lines, though I was thinking more of:

graph document - update operation(s) - graph document
  or
graph document - update operations(s) - [ query + result ]

Darn. I was hoping you'd have something for testing SPARUL that we
could build on. So I take it that this hasn't been automated?
