As coded and with the current pass/fail condition, the testcase can not
fail, in particular for user agents which do not support max-width
property. Eg. IE5 would pass such testcase.

So far, I would say the same for all other max-width testcases targeting
a one value of an unit: "Max-width using [some unit name] with a minimum
plus one value, 1[unit]"


can not fail, will always pass.

Same thing with max-height with a minimum of plus one value. The way
they are coded makes it impossible for the testcases to fail, even in
browsers/user agents which do not support max-[height|width] property.

In order for all these testcases to be stricter, more demanding, the
testcases need, say, an overlapped red rectangle or a nearby measurement
