It's not as easy as that but yes I completely agree with you. Test 
Suites are very good, not enough but very good. It takes times to 
create test suites, it takes times to run implementation reports. In 
the Quality Assurance (QA) WG, we try to push Working Groups to do it 
at the earliest stage of the life of the WG.
Read the QA Spec GL for that.

For the specific topic of C14N (Joint effort of IETF and W3C), you
