That's certainly an option we should discuss as well, yeah.

This is what I put in the spec:

Before this specification exits Candidate Recommendation, two or more independent implementations must pass each test, although no single implementation must pass each test. The working group will decide when the test suite is of sufficient quality to test interoperability and will produce an implementation report (hosted together with the test suite).

The test suite is quite complete already. The only thing that's really missing is negative tests to check the returned error codes.

We didn't really talk about the Promises dependency anymore. Both Google [1] and Mozilla [2] will start to support them natively in their browsers soon. So I hope that this won't be a big problem. I don't know if webapps or some other group is going to re-publish the spec as W3C spec.
