Further examination of the 1.1 test page at http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/wiki/Interop and the current 2.0 drafts I found the following items:

There is no test for streaming.
There is no test for prefix rewriting
Therer are no tests for the forms of C14N (inclusive and exclusive) accepted by XML Signature Syntax and Processing Version 2.0
There is no test for "2.0 Mode" Selection Algorithms 

I found the following items that could be used in groups as interoperability tests for what is in the current drafts, I used the section numbers in the documents. These processing requirements could be grouped to make testing easier.

Comments are welcome.

ACTION-779 - Review test cases for 1.1 and summarize which are missing 

In my examination, I used the test cases described at the InterOp XML Security 
Wiki (http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/wiki/Interop) 


First I compared the test cases with the 2.0 mark-ups in the diff marked version 
of Canonical XML Version 2.0 

http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/Drafts/xmldsig-core-20/Overview-pub-diff.html#sec-SelectionMode-2.0

I found the following items:
There is no reference to the combined (inclusive and exclusive) 
canonicalization implementations (they were separate before)
  There is no reference to "conformance profiles".

Second I compared the test cases to the diff marked XML Signature Syntax and 
Processing Version 2.0.
http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/Drafts/xmldsig-core-20/Overview-pub-diff.html
I found the following items 
  There is no reference to dsig2:Verification in the test cases. 
  There is no reference to the streaming XPath profile.
  There is no reference to "2.0 Mode" Selection Algorithms
