I agree with your judgement (as does rxp).

The only member of the Core WG who regularly maintained the Test Suite has taken a leave for personal reasons. W3C staff time constraints doesn't permit me to spend much time on the test suite, I'm sorry. Net conclusion: what you can do to help, which would be _very_ welcome, is to join the XML Core WG and take over maintenance of the Test Suite. > As an aside, the errata of the first edition of Namespaces in XML > got broken in September 2007 and has not been fixed since.
