There is some of that in the new version of the guidelines.

That's a good point; I'm afraid I haven't done that in the current
version of the document, but I think it could be an improvement - would
you mind taking a stab at it?

I have added such a section in "Existing work".

Other things that needs improvements in the new document:
 * right/wrong examples, preferably based on real test suites
 * maybe an intro on the test harness?
 * reviews :)
