I've been thinking about Glen's concern about REQUIRED|OPTIONAL|
INFORMATIONAL wrt the testsuite.

Now the testsuite has done its job and helped demonstrate 
interoperability of the CR versions of the Core and SOAP binding
specifications, and we have a snapshot of the CR report, 
I suggest adding a new attribute to each testcase,

   status='REQUIRED|OPTIONAL|INFORMATIONAL' 

to indicate if the testcase exhibits a required, optional 
or informational feature, irrespective of our 'CR' report.

I guess we could also contemplate continuing to accept new 
testcases if they were submitted in the form of a testcases.xml 
snippit and an example document and reused the notify and 
echo 'operations'. There would be no expectation that our
existing endpoints would send such tests, but chances are
they'd work with them if they fell within the remit of our
PR specs.

And as for WSDL CR testing, well that's another story, 
and one probably layered upon the current suite, and something 
I have to confess to being mostly clueless about what
it would demonstrate, exactly ;-)
