Jim,

I expect Zorba to report results by the end of the year, hopefully 100%. We implement all the features,
including the optional ones.

The exceptions are Serialization 3.0, which will be submitted for a second Last Call comment period, and XSLT 3.0, which has not yet entered the Last Call phase.  (The documents being considered for advancement are XQuery 3.0, XQueryX 3.0, XPath 3.0, XDM 3.0, and F&O 3.0.)

We are currently in the process of reviewing the test suite to determine what additional tests are needed to ensure that we can determine our specs to be implementable as required by W3C policies.

Therefore, as documents are transitioned to Candidate Recommendation, a Call for Implementations is issued.  Implementations respond to that call by submitting their results from running the test suite and by reporting bugs they've discovered as a result.

At this point, we honestly cannot predict whether implementors will require two weeks, two months, or two quarters before they're able to submit results.
