if filters are validated against elements (PropertyNames) which are
absent should usually evaluate to false, so these records should not be
included. Beware, though, I'm not an expert in catalogues, there might
be some specialties defined in the spec(s) that I'm not aware of.

I'm not aware of a collection of responses. Usually the test assertion
gives you some hints, as well as the failure message. If that does not
help, I usually look into the CTL files to see what the author of the
test intended to do, but posting the appropriate snippet from the output
here on the list (or asking about specific tests) will probably also
give you the answers you need ;-)

The most interesting part will be the appropriate part of the log from
the browser window that pops up when you start the test (make sure
popup blockers are disabled for the TEAM engine page).
