Just so it is clear that the above method is very rough (but without 
suggesting that anyone has claimed otherwise), it is instructive to look 
at the syntax section. Based on the default settings, the coverage table 
claims that syntax/writing needs over 400 tests, but actually the only 
conformance criteria in that section are for users. On the other hand it 
claims that syntax/parsing is overtested by a factor of about 10. 
However experience shows that, although interop is dramatically better 
than it was a few years ago, we are still finding significant bugs and 
incompatibilities in implementations.
