This tool from Family History Hosting evaluates a genealogy programs compliance to the latest GEDcom 5.1 standard.  While many programs are reviewed, the comments on RM review are not complimentary compared to no comments on FTM 2019.

The test is against 5.5.1, not 5.1.

The difference in the number of comments can be attributed to the different reviewers. RM was reviewed by the author of the test who is extremely well-versed in the subject and writes fulsomely. More telling are the statistics. RM supports or partially supports 153, FTM 140. They both could/should do better.
