Ok, help me understand where a requirement such as that a server must 
support turtle come into play in assessing conformance then?

When we've talked about validation and test suite we've actually talked 
about more than a stand alone validator that would simply parse an LDP 
file. We've talked about an agent that would interact with an LDP server. 
Was that line of thinking completely off?
