[[[
In the case where there is a feature with no interoperable  
implementations, the authors have specified what they believe to be

The specification is here to set what is the correct behavior for the  
technology. Certainly there will be problems of interoperability,  
because of the history of the development.  But I believe that a  
complete Test Suite should help to solve these issues by "showing,  
don't tell" what is the correct behavior". I would suggest to  
suppress "most" in the sentence and "believe". The sentence contains  
also a prose which might be obsolete after a few years as it is only  
valid now.
