We were very enthusiastic, but then were told that the whole project
was dropped and W3C would not be doing this after all.

If we heard wrong, please confirm.

We are, meanwhile, in the midst of an effort to really expand the SVG
Tiny test suite, because we thought it was a good idea to do so. And a
third party might be interested in doing compliance testing against
this.
