This is a problem when parsing multiple files.

Different parsers can generate things in different orders and still be 
"streaming" e.g. around lists there are choices whether the rdf:first or 
previous rdf:rest is emitted first.

I think we should note that the results recorded were based on modified 
test answers.


Licensing:

W3C has a specific license for test suites: we ought to use it:

http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Legal/2008/04-testsuite-copyright.html

which has specific provisions for this situation.

It should be applied to at least the "product" (the entire test suite) - 
it does not mean each element of the product must use the license (the 
submission tests would be a problem otherwise).
