I think it is (3) because the context of this thread is test suites
(and their goodness-rating) rather than documents (and their
goodness-rating). The original proposal was to rate the quality of all
test suites listed in the Matrix. This is different from what you seem
to be talking about (rating the quality of the documents that those
test suite may have been based on).
