I think saying that "test results as processed by Xerces 1.4.3-J" is
confusing and not fair.

Sorry for being pushy, but it looks like the result is also processed by
Sun Multi Schema Validator, although it's not mentioned.


It's not clear from the outcome message whether

- XML Schema implementation of Xerces is validating documents
- MSV is validating documents and Xerces is used just as a parser
- Both Xerces and MSV are validating documents

I'd like to see the command line options that were used to produce the
result, and versions of XSV and MSV, too.

Also, I think the test collection should consider a test case
inconsistent if the expected result is different from the results of
implementations.
