These seem like 28 proposals to improve test *cases*, but it's not
clear to me how you intend them to affect the *guidelines*.

I'd be very hesitant to add 28 rules like these to the guidelines,
because it makes it much harder for people to get started writing
testcases, and it makes it harder to convince people that writing
testcases according to the guidelines is easy to do and worth doing.
If they could be boiled down to a few sentences I'd be much happier
adding to the guidelines.
