We don't need to have the test suite completed until then. But getting
something started would be good. There is already at least one
implementation of the data format available.

Note we don't need to work on a test-suite till we exit Candidate
Recommendation, which I don't believe we're near yet :) So while we can
discuss what would like in such a test-suite, it seems a bit premature
unless someone has the time to code up a validator real quick.

See here:

Focus show now be probably on implementing AS 2.0 and seeing if any
products and users want/need various features.
