It looks good.

To show I've read it ... s/2004/2007/ in the copyright :-)

The RDF Data Access Working Group (DAWG) uses a test-driven process.  The test 
area is a collection of collection of the current and superseded test cases of 
the working group.
Minor: if the page is a letter to implementers as the next 2 paras suggests, 
this text is unnecessary.  Also, as it points to the new area, there are no 
superseded tests.

In the example report, it uses the "[ :p "foo" ] ." syntax form which isn't 
strict Turtle.  The namespace prefix "_8:" isn't legal SPARQL (starts with _ 
but is not a blank node) but is legal Turtle.

Some reports may be written directly by text-generating script; some will be 
generated by serializing a graph as in the example, I guess.  We are making a 
statement about what we will accept by giving an example.

If we are prepared to accept this form, then no need to change the example. I 
don't think we are in the business of enforcing other specs so I'm happy with 
the example as is.
