That is really awesome! We planned to port the test once we have enough tests as well. 

I would not upload the tests at this point of time. We still make some changes to the spec, that influence the tests as well. Please hold on on uploading the converted tests till we are in LCWD.

That are really good questions. I talked with Peter about that this morning and he needs more help from the maintainer of the SVG test suite. So the SVG wg should reach out to Peter directly.
