I'd be happy to help on this too, and was thinking about doing something on this myself. However, this could be an issue if the syntax is in any flux.

As RDFa shows, SPARQL is effective, but unless you have a local SPARQL processor available, it can make the development cycle difficult (i.e., publish to distiller and run test suite). Other RDF languages do this through graph equivalence with an N-Triples representation, which is can also be challenging, but is fairly common for other test suites (RDF/XML, Turtle, N3). It's certainly useful to be able to integrate testing in my local development environment that can be run off line.

However, leveraging the RDFa test suite infrastructure could allow us to be up and running fairly soon, given someone willing to host the suite.
