I agree it should.

I remember writing that test, and it was partly an exploratory/UA test. Its derived from linking-a-04-t.svg (which has three arrows), using @xlink:show on the left (default, new, and replace) and comparing this on the right with the same arrows which also have @target. The aim was to check whether @target overrode @xlink:show (it does) and this fed into spec clarifications.

Perhaps the test would be clearer if the left and right halves were split. The right half is a test for the priority of @target over @xlink:show. The left half is much the same as  linking-a-04-t.svg. Please check the blue arrow in linking-a-04-t.svg as well.

We still lack a test for the other values of @target. I see that linking-a-07-t.svg is empty, and volunteer to fill it in with an @target test.

Yup, although if you agree about the split, that would be in linking-a-04-t.svg. If not, then yes update it. But then the test purpose and pass criteria need to be better explained.
