[CSS21] CR Exit Criteria: Test Suite Status

In the "Candidate Recommendation Exit Criteria" section
(http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/CR-CSS21-20040225), there is a requirement for a
CSS 2.1 test suite, and that each feature passes "respective test cases in
the test suite" on at least two interoperable implementations.

Is there someplace the current status of the CSS21 features with respect to
this requirement is tracked in the public forum?  If there is not, or if the
WG has decided to reserve the detailed status for WG members, please
consider publishing some kind of summary on a periodic basis.

I checked the http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Test/CSS21/current/ URL on the off
chance it was coming together there (as of tonight, it's not).

I would strongly encourage the WG to open this up as much as possible since
this is one of the key exit criteria for the CR.

If there are insufficient implementations, or if "sufficient and adequate
tests" have not been produced in the WG's judgment, I'm certain the
followers of CSS21 would be eager to provide candidate tests cases, or
candidate implementations.

My suggestion would be to clearly identify which features are considered
"interoperable", for each feature identify which "implementations" are
considered interoperable (as well as any that are know to be *not*
interoperable), which tests compromise the complete test suite, and which of
these tests are considered "sufficient and adequate" (or not).
