Hi,

  I've been thinking about the CR exit criteria discussion. Here's my
  opinion on it.

  First, I think Chris' request is reasonable (that is two
  successful passes for each 1.0 and 2.0 tests). There is however a
  down side to it, and that is it could slow us down in our progress
  to Rec. 

  Is there middle ground that can be reached? Probably.

  I think we would have to agree that no new 1.0 tests can be created.
  Dealing with the existing one is plenty for now. If the CGM Open TC
  wants to create more tests later; that's up to them, but from a W3C
  perspective, we are only dealing with existing 1.0 tests. Ok?

  Also, I don't think the working group should be trying to regroup
  the two test suites into a single one. That would be wasted cycles
  (in my opinion). 
  
  Creating the matrix itself wouldn't take much time, the name of each
  test is available in the ICS pro-forma. This is mostly copy/paste
  work.

  What is time consuming is if vendors provide inaccurate results;
  this can't happen. Also each vendor would have to be able to provide
  beta versions of their product for someone like Chris to verify the
  results. If we get a commitment from all the vendors to provide
  prompt and accurate results for each tests, it may be doable in
  relatively little time; if that's not the case, I'm afraid we'd be
  stuck in CR for a long time.

  Thoughts on this?
