I'm interested to know if there are any new developments on this issue.  
I'm actually verifying if MapServer is OGC WFS basic compliant.   They 
are some tests that didn't pass on the TEAM Engine that passed on the 
Legacy Engine conformance tests suite.  They are not any explanation 
about the failures.
