Hello David, Boris, Arron and others,

I have reread my report and I have misused or wrongly used the
"rejected" verdict word in many cases. Often, my comments on testcases
says "need more work" or "need adjustments" and those testcases should
just be considered as needing adjustements or requiring an alt attribute
here or a better/more correct meta assert text there, etc.

In the past, I have often provided replacements or suggested
alternatives myself than pure/gratuitious rejections and I have
rehabilitated a bunch of testcases which were rejected (
outline-width-096.htm , z-index-stack-003.htm , float-006.htm spring
into my mind here).

It would be ridiculous to reject a testcase just because an alt
attribute is missing or because the "taller" word seems preferable to
the "larger" word.

Sorry about that.

regards, Gérard
