I wasn't at the F2F, but I read the minutes with great interest afterwards. Did the resolution ("Changes List for a CR links to updated or additional test cases for each change") get turned into a written policy somewhere? This is the biggest missing piece, in my view.

Ideally, I think that the policy shouldn't depend on the formal status, since exceptions for good (other) reasons should be OK before and after CR. The policy suggested by @zcorpan here is (deliberately) worded rather weakly, and allows for practically any organization of testing work as long as missing test coverage is tracked. So, it would be reasonable for a spec that is very unstable to simple have an "there are no tests" issue, then replaced by a more concrete TODO list as the spec matures, and eventually something approximating full coverage.

https://drafts.csswg.org/cssom/ and https://drafts.csswg.org/cssom-view/ are both editor's drafts, but are both still clearly mature enough (similar to HTML/DOM) to have tests or issues for every normative change.
