To separate the issues there slightly (and not go into the question of
whether the Presentation Syntax should be more readable), I imagine the
test-cases machinery to be language-agnostic.  We can have test cases
(probably unofficial ones) in proprietary languages, etc.  So, at least,
there's no problem with making up a rule languages and having some test
cases in it.  I'd hope that anyone putting forward such a
language/test-case would provide an on-line service to translate to/from
RIF (XML), and/or some code that can be thrown into the test-case
management software.
