Ok, so it looks like for test cases that are core, we should indicate also 
whether they are safe or not.
One thing that wasn't clear to me (from the Core document) is whether PRD 
extends core or safe-core.  The last paragraph of the overview says core 
is a syntactic subset of PRD but that some core rules would be unsafe in 
PRD, so safe-core is defined. But if complete-core is a syntactic subset 
of PRD then those unsafe rules must be allowed according to the PRD spec 
anyway, so why define the safe subset of core?

RE: [RIF] test case dialect indicators

I would say yes:
The resolutions on Core are implemented; only a few issues are open
(to become editors' notes in FPWD).
We recently noticed that several examples in the current BLD spec are
actually Core examples. So, we might generalize them for the BLD spec
and keep them for the Core spec.
We cannot be sure about a few BLD/Core feature adjustments that could
be needed later, but dialect labeling in UCR would be helpful at this 

When the Core spec seems unclear for the purpose of such labeling,
could you draw our attention to it?

Is Core settled enough that it makes sense to now go through the test 
cases and indicate which are Core?  Currently all approved and proposed 
tests are marked as BLD.
