I am speaking about an end-point such as http://id.myopenlink.net/ods/webid_demo.html but others could be ok. What can it produce that would be easy for a test suite to consume?

Is there a test suite outline somewhere? Note, we've done similar with 
SPARQL that included EARL reports. What's the equivalent for WebID?

If there isn't an outline, just look at how its being done re. SPARQL. 
Each vendor runs through a set of tests and products an EARL based report.

If you need more information from our verification service, please 
specify, or point to an existing service that is providing required 
information.

Note: http://id.myopenlink.net/ods/webid_check.vsp , the verification 
proxy service which supports callbacks etc. I know Peter used this 
successfully a while back.
