I believe it is probably time to start developing a set of test cases
for XML processor profiles.  We'll probably be lifting examples, etc.
from other specifications.

We also have the difficulty of not having an "expected output" against
which we will be testing.  We can describe the expected outcomes for
particular elements as a way of allowing implementors to test their
systems.  That is, a web browser vendor can inspect the DOM for
certain properties that should be their if they've done the correct
thing during processing the XML.

I suppose this e-mail counts as volunteering.
