As a test tool should (according to 2.3.1)

# Continue individual tests as far as is possible
# Carry out as many tests as is reasonable

the tool should collect all the FAILs. E.g. in 3.8 IMAGE_MAPS testing a 
document containing three image maps should result in three FAIL 
messages and not just one (for the first occurence).

+ Included Resources (2.3.6) and Included Style Sheet Resources (2.3.7)?

Should the definition of CSS validity (2.3.9) be split into grammar 
validity (something like wellformedness in XML), which is used in 3.4, 
and vocabulary validity (properties, values, functions, ... defined in 
the specification), which is used in 3.21?
