Hi there,

	The current "Test Guidelines" draft[1] seems to mix ideas
covering very distinct and quite independent areas:

	a) what a good test suite should be
	b) how to make a good test suite

The guidelines in the (b) category are often subjective and attempt to
limit developer options unnecessary. I would suggest moving them to a
separate informational document if not completely eliminating them.
IMO, QA WG should focus on (a).

It may be useful to look at Open Group test suite acceptance
criteria[2] as an example of a document that concentrates on (a).

Thank you,

Alex.
