This too shall pass. I understand your confusion here. We published XQUTS 
1.0.1, began collecting results and publishing reports, accepted bug 
reports, and modified the test suite. Saxon's results were submitted 
earlier, yours were submitted later. I'm planning to wait until Bug #10432 
is resolved and then ask all vendors to resubmit their results.

The stylesheet that generates the reports uses the pass/fail results that 
you provide, independent of whether the feature is supported. You could 
provide a result of  "not applicable" or "not tested" instead of "fail", 
Only "fail" generates the red shading.  You could add a comment attribute 
explaining that the feature is not supported if you wish.

As I said above, you could report a result of  "not applicable" or "not 
tested". You could not generate results for those tests. This looks like 
what the other products are doing.
