Hi Christophe, all,

while I am on the process of developing new test cases for BenToWeb I 
came across an issue we have discussed in August [1] :
hmm.. It seems that my interpretation in wrong...  Well, I actually 
remember during developing tests I had to develop more tests as I could 
not state somewhere that "I assume this has been tested". So I would 
prefer to have an element to include the prereq tests.

Now, I have faced that problem again and I have a clearer picture, so I 
will try to describe it:
For instance, I am working on sc 2.4.8. One of the techniques / tests I 
should provide concerns <map> with or with no alt attribute. But for 
instance, such a test file (html) has already been developed by 1.1.1. 
Following bentoweb conventions (described in [2] under Naming 
Conventions) I should create new xhtml files with file names sc2.4.8_xx 
and probably copy and paste 1.1.1 html test file (??).

So, I think we should provide a mechanism to reuse test files (html 
etc). I think that this requirement is addressed by WCAG by the 
techniques document under "This technique is referenced from:" [3]. So 
IMO we should use something like WCAG Techniques file name (test files - 
no tcdl files) conventions, thus independent of success criteria (i.e. 
h1.html etc... ). (same would apply for media files etc)
