Go ahead Manrique, run with it :-)
Please reformulate the tests that we had assigned to Dan.

The core of the TESTING Best Practice is that testing should be performed.
The problem is, how to do you check it both quantitatively and qualitatively?
While providing a suite a capabilities that should be tested surely is a good thing (and not a bad idea at that), it will always be short of what we need.
Also, there is more to it.  For example testing with different and real devices, not emulators or the DDC...for example.

We have not found an answer to this, but if you can work out a clear test for testing I'd be curious to see it.
