We'll handle that on a case-by-case basis. If there's a spec change that requires a new test, then we'll add it (but most likely that change is going to ensure that we have two passing implementations of that change...) We're not trying to be draconian, just practical, we could keep adding tests for years and never get 2.1 done, we have to draw a line somewhere. It's far more likely that we'll remove tests (and relevant portions of the spec, ie, make something undefined in 2.1 and fix it in 3).
