I thought I'd done so with this text:

* 2.10 Comment: add "It is unclear whether it is necessary to apply 
version numbers to individual tests. More common practice is to version 
the entire test suite. Ideally tests will not need to be revised as the 
specification evolves. However, this is sometimes necessary, and at a 
minimum each Working Group should define SpecRef and possibly other 
metadata such as Grouping elements to indicate which versions of the 
specification an individual test supports."

If you think that the "it is unclear whether it is necessary" language 
is too vague could you perhaps suggest an alternative?
