no, I think you can get a certificate for each standard version you
implement. As far as I know, you can even get multiple certificates for
one standard version (eg. WFS 1.1 with transactions, WFS 1.1 with
transactions and xlinks).

Yes, as long as your capabilities advertise that the service doesn't
support it and you uncheck the appropriate options when running the
tests you should be fine.

Yes, exactly. I guess Luis knows best what options are available (plus
what conformance classes the upcoming WFS 2.0 tests will support).
