I wonder whether the spirit of what we're trying to say is:

"An implementation may be said to be SOAP 1.2 conformant if and only if it 
completely and correctly implements that normative requirements of {ref to 
framework and adjuncts.}  The W3C does not at this time provide for any 
comprehensive means of testing for such conformance.  The tests in this 
document are a necessary but not sufficient precondition for demonstrating 
conformance to SOAP 1.2.  Accordingly, a SOAP 1.2 implementation that 
passes all of the tests specified in this document may claim to conform to 
the SOAP 1.2 Test Suite (insert version number)."

Is this in the ballpark?
