The public SMIL 2.0 Testsuite was designed to validate the SMIL2.0 specification and to insure that all features in the SMIL 2.0 specification are implemented at least twice in an interoperable way by implementations having been developed independently by different organizations and each test in the SMIL 2.0 Testsuite has at least two passing implementations.
The Implementation results are publicly released and are intended solely to be used as proof of SMIL 2.0 implementability. It is only a snap shot of the actual implementation behaviors at one moment of time, as these implementations may not be immediately available to the public.
The interoperability data is not intended to be used for assessing or grading the performance of any individual implementation.
