As a suggestion I think it would be good to add to the error message 
returned by the wfs:GMLValidatingParser that it does not validate 
against the dataFeatures.xsd schema.  This is not clear in the 
documentation found at 
http://cite.opengeospatial.org/test_engine/wfs/1.0.0/exec_summary that 
this schema is used for validation.  Also the GML validator 
(http://cite.opengeospatial.org/test_engine/gml/2.1.2/validator/) should 
use the same schema as the one used by the TEAM Engine, not the one 
provided by our WFS server response.

What do you think?
