Forgot that file even existed.  Added.

Matches ksh93 to the best of my ability to test.

Indeed I did.  Changed.

I believe they are so implied.

Not sure what you mean here, there are lots of tests that expect a
zero exit status and check output only on stdout.  The fifth test
specifically attempts adding the "tag" attribute to a named reference
and looks for the expected warning.  In a number of cases I'm checking
that the state of variables has been restored to the expected state by
looking for both correct stdout of the earlier steps and "no such
variable" after the test is done, the intent being to catch any cases
where the nameref goes too far up the stack of scopes.

Consolidated patch for both proofreadings will follow if when there's
no futher discussion.
