I suppose those outstanding issues have yet to go through the discussion
and proposal process as the items listed in the errata did.  This exercise
is about mapping tests to those items already agreed upon in the errata,
not necessarily for adding new items.  That said though, the other action
item related to this was for Anton and fantasai to review the errata [1],
so they may also take these things into consideration.
