      This one goes further - the spec is the test suite - it's
      mostly just a bunch of XPath "patterns" bundle in to a XSLT
      detector and a load of examples we wrapup in SOAP and WSDL and
      fire at toolkits.

      No. For Basic, if a "state of the art" toolkit doesn't work with a
      it's "at risk" so likely to be removed before we move to
      "Proposed Recommendation".

      For "Advanced" we've yet to decide on our criteria: the test suite
      will be there, but what happens if a pattern widely used in schemata
      in the wild is ignored by all databinding implementations?

      So the risk is we don't hear from implementers at all: maybe their
      kit is defunct,
      and not "state of the art", maybe it's top-secret, or maybe the owners
      believe they support the whole of schema and don't need to bother

      .. you decide :-)
