Re the testing process ...

The test suite needs to address different scenarios, one of them being 
testing the CR and another being testing against subsequent/new versions 
of the spec.

Hae yong is focusing on the CR scenario. I think the main requirements 
for testing CR exit criteria are: the set of tests should be approved by 
the entire WG; and the specific set of tests is clearly identified. 
Given the testing process as agreed now, my expectation is the tests in 
the approved dir are only those tests used to test the CR.

I agree using directory names and copying tests isn't an ideal way to 
manage the various scenarios and tests. However, if we continue along 
that path, perhaps the approved dir could contain all approved tests and 
a dir like ".../approved/CR/" could be created for the CR tests or 
within the approved dir there is a file named something like 
"CR-test-list" that enumerates those approved tests that are used to 
test the CR.

Re the publication process ...

After WebApps publishes a CR, my general expectation is the spec will 
continue to move forward through the TR process and will only go back to 
WD if there is WG-wide consensus to do so.

In this case, the group could publish the latest Web Storage ED as a new 
WD e.g. v1.1 or v2, etc.
