I've checked in tests for ta-6 through ta-9.

So presumably the access element is ignored in cases 2 & 3, even if the element itself is valid? I'm not sure if that's such a great idea for interoperability.

Unless of course it is processed, just after processing the P&C elements, which has no discernible effect on the processed widget and doesn't really make it testable.

Maybe I'm just missing something here!

OK, I'll make a test for that case.
