Today we reached a 100% pass rate for the first time! There are some remaining issues yet to be fixed, but we hope to have those sorted out shortly."

How about firefox 3?

It's still in beta stage, so they still have a chance to fix it (and maybe become a first official browser that passes acid3).
OTOH, tuning specifically for the test doesn't mean that implementation of those features is robust (and that problems won't be visible elsewhere).

I don't think so, I'm afraid. FF3 is in beta mainly due to unfixed bugs. Major functionality will definitely not be added at this stage. And a jump from 50-60% ACID3 to 100% is not going to happen for 3.0.0. Later, perhaps, sure.

what is the point of the test, then?

ACID2 tested how to interpret even faulty code (how certain errors should be handled) - I assume ACID3 is the same.

Sure - one test can't possibly cover every quirk; and definitely doesn't dictate the behaviour of possibly related things, but if a 100% on the test does not guarantee what you are testing for (support of those standards), then it's not a very good test anyway.
