please note that the generator takes a syntax and generates the tests.
Since our developers tried to implement the normative parts of the
working draft and the February's working drafts normative grammar was -
umh - rather buggy, the implemented grammar had to make some
There is quite a difference between the use cases (that certainly can
and should serve as a start) and an automatically generated set of
I am sure as the time progresses and the new working draft will provide
a usable, normative grammar, the test cases that we generate will be
