Automation where possible is a great thing, of course.  But some things
just can't be automated, yet are certainly valuable enough to have in the
testsuite.  Like having a test that shows that a xf:message that contains a
xf:output or a xf:select that contains a xf:item that contains a xf:label
that contains a xf:output.  Both are things worthy of the testsuite, I
think, but both would be tough to verify in a way other than visually.

But if automation is possible, then these visually-verifiable-only tests
could be broken out into a separate piece that might only take 10 minutes
to run instead of the day it takes to run the test suite, now.

Maybe the W3C needs to run a 'summer of code' type of thing to get this
done.
