I don’t have any major suggestions at the moment.  Joshua suggested publishing the results for checking.  With the parameterization, maybe the query driver could write results to disk with the parameters it used then use some kind of answer template to check the results.  A simpler version might be to publish a separate set of queries with parameter substituted along with the correct results for testing.

The benchmark results for a single store are span 3-4 order of magnitude so there is a question of what is being measured.   Especially for the smaller number, it is presumably the comms and not the SPARQL engine that is the significant cost point and that will change significantly as to whether it is localhost or remote.

Great - look forward to it.
