I made this change to the test repository [1].  Please take a look at [2]
(specifically the name and remote elements within the ImportedDocument
element), and [3]. The .ttl files are in the repository but they aren't
referred to anywhere in the documentation or the xml testcase files. The
content of the turtle files is (as before) displayed on the wiki and
included in the testcase xml files.
