The authoring tool group does ad-hoc reviews of tools - mostly for checking
their own work rather than as a reference:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/AU/2002/tools

The WCAG group tried to produce such a reference but apparently didn't have
the resources to keep it going. (It's real goal was to answer the questions
arising from checkpoints that start "until user agents..." by tracking which
user agents did whatever the checkpoint required.)

There are other groups who produce such matrices. The W3C Quality Assurance
activity may have more information - http://www.w3.org/QA/
