Frank,

1) I'd say whenever Litmus is reporting a FAIL that is serious. For
instance, the FAIL for props 3 indicates that the server doesn't use a
compliant XML parser.

2) Did you use the latest Litmus version? 0.9.2 includes many more tests,
I'm not sure why they weren't run in your case (maybe -k doesn't work as
advertised). For instance, I'm missing results of LOCK tests.

At the end of the day, Litmus is the thing closest to a "conformance test
suite" that we have. If a server produces failures, I'd recommend to get
back to the vendor and ask for an explanation.

Julian
