Worth pushing. Be ready for plenty of frustrations.

Having tests in the specification is indeed a way to raise the bar of quality. We just pushing further the envelope of quality. It will not solve the issues as in once we reached that stage we will want to push further. Been there, done that (with Candidate Recommendation created, conformance section, interop reports, etc.)

It also means by pushing that we add another layer of… process (being written or not ;) still the same). Personally, I don't mind, I know some vocal WG participants do mind :) Life is not easy.
