It would appear that there was not consent that the tests there were
sufficient. It appears that consensus is that they are all valid, which is
good :)

However, we now have additional tests proposed by Erik Dahlström[1] and
Ian Hickson[2,3]. In addition Lachy identified missing tests that show
bugs in existing implementations[4].

So we have a new call for consensus on each of four questions:

Should we make Erik's proposed changes[1] to the test suite?
Should we add Hixie's first test[2]?
Should we add Hixie's second test[3]?
Do we need tests as described by Lachy[4]

Please reply before 1 May - silence will be assent, positive early
answers are preferred (especially if you think there is something
we should be discussing still).

cheers
