The contention that non-validing implementations are not required to provide
default attribute values and doctype nodes.  This could be broken down into
several subsets, those tests that require reading the external subset, those
that require processing the internal subset, etc.  You might review the
Mozilla Dom L1 Core test summary that I did last November

The getElementsByTagNameNS("*",...) interpretation.

Whether "no effect when defined to be null" takes precedence over the
NO_MODIFICATION_ALLOWED_ERR exception clause for setNodeValue.

Did you mean JUnit or JSUnit.  Dropping JUnit would be a bad thing since
using a standard testing framework makes it easier for the DOM tests to get
integrated into the standard build process of implementations.  Requiring a
custom testing framework hinders use of the tests.

Having a custom runner for browser-based testing is beneficial, however I'd
still like the tests to be runnable both with JSUnit and the custom browser
