About a year ago when we set up an area on the dev.w3.org CVS
server for storing and managing test cases:

  http://dev.w3.org/html5/tests/

We then got into some discussions about what the structure of the
subdirectories should be, but never got around to actually
checking in any tests. But since you've got tests you'd like to
submit, it would be good to get them checked in there. We can just
choose a subdirectory structure and adjust later if we need to (I
have shell access to the directory on the CVS server, so I can
move/rename directories while still preserving the revision
histories for the files they contain.

Ideally, what I'd prefer is to set you up with CVS access to
dev.w3.org so that you can check in the files yourself, and so
for the purposes of maintaining them you'd continue be the owner
for them going forward (for example, if you make changes to the
versions you team at MS is using internally, you could check in
those same changes to the tests stored on dev.w3.org.

If you'd be willing to do that, I can work with you off-list to
get you set up with CVS access. (Basically, for anybody to have
write access to dev.w3.org, what we need is an SSH2 key -- RSA or
DSA, doesn't matter which).
