Hi,

The test df.wgt contains a feature without name. In this case, the feature element is ignored and the widget remains valid.
The test d4.wgt contains an invalid feature name. In this case, the widget should be considered as invalid. I don't understand that. I understand the rationale that if a feature is required, the UA shall not process the widget. Whether it does or not understand the feature, it doesn't matter. Is it because you foresee evolution in the syntax of feature names, which wouldn't be IRI ? If not, I suggest to make this test pass and ignore the feature element.

Regards,
Cyril
