I assume you are referring to

     https://github.com/w3c/data-shapes/pull/79

The claim that this pull request has not been accepted is misleading, 
and using it to justify a formal objection is incorrect. These tests are 
still in the pipeline because we are trying to determine which 
additional cases of SPARQL (e.g. VALUES) we should disallow. Once we 
make the decision, the tests are almost certainly becoming obsolete. I 
had asked for your input on whether you can find similar tests without 
VALUES, but you have not responded yet. Your assessment may prevent a 
longish back-and-forth on this issue.
