Thank you for your comment, which the QA Working Group has accepted with
modification.  The comment is a good one, but a bit out of scope since it is
about how to write good tests.  However, we have reworded the affected
section to clarify and it now reads [2]

 

" What does it mean? For each feature, the Working Group might seek early
implementation to demonstrate the feature. If early implementations are not
available (e.g., due to commercial constraints, IPR, etc.), it is beneficial
to write test cases to illustrate a concept or use case of the technology.
This provides a way to to study the interactions between the different parts
of the specification and reveal problems. Additionally, these test cases can
be incorporated into a test suite."
