Jules, most people did not wax floors because of the danger of slipping. But I don't know of a test and it certainly could have been. The usual remover for wax is ammonia but this will harm oak. The ammonia reacts with the tannin in oak and it turns the wood brown/black on the surface.
Another potential problem is with silicones. A lot of "floor care" products have them and they are similar. The problem with silicones is that they will make just about any brush on or spray on finish "fisheye". Fisheye is a situation where the finish kind of pushes away from some spots and dries in a series of circular ridges rather than laying flat. Don't know of a test or easy cure for this either.
