The page lacks descriptions of the properties Text and Format and
guidelines about how to format the title.
Then, it is not very clear to me what the difference is between the
properties Purpose and Description.

All the examples like the required properties title and purpose.  In
addition, it is unclear to me which syntax they use. it is certainly not
valid presentation syntax.

I tried to write a test case (a negative entailment test), but I was not
sure whether it is in the correct format.  Please check:
