Sounds like you're making progress and good decisions!  My thoughts inline.

You are correct, the tests are define the capability.  Improvements in Names are welcome.  I'd love to see some short descriptions of the intent too.  The current list was intended to bootstrap the process not be an absolute reference.

Sorry to waffle on this.  I think both definitions can be applied with an AND.  A complete capability works in a broad set of cases (is not only for a single use case) AND is fully implemented.

I think that it's prefect for the TC to focus on the second question - that's very much where we have questions.  If it's not complete from the TC's perspective then I'd be amazed if it was complete in the other sense.
