Outputting default values (Was: Re: Data binding results update for XBinder)

I see from Ed's results that they 'failed' on LocalElementDefault because 
they output the default value when it wasn't present on the input.  I'm just 
wondering whether this should really be considered a failure?  If anything 
it proves that they captured the default value rather than capturing 

Also, I see that that stupid float number is still in there.  I think Ed 
must have done something to get this to round trip as I can't see how C/C++ 
generates a float of the form 1267.43233E12 (I may be wrong).  In my opinion 
the choice of this number encourages you to make such exceptions.  For 
example, when we do the tests we will be mapping xs:float to C's 'double' 
rather than the default 'float' to address this.  Maybe there should be a 
section of the report that captures any special setup that has been used for 
the tests.
