So I take it one doesn't have a set of conformance tests? The 98% number 
is entirely subjective, or rather, expert opinion?

If so, short of soliciting your expert opinion on the several other 
schema processors out there, it's not obvious how to reconcile Henry 
Thompson's assertion that the conformance problem is largely solved with 
the contradictory evidence given by Rick Jelliffe and others.
