Thanks.  I'll add it to the list.  We are hoping to do a new rev of
the testsuite before too long.  There are a number of errors, and it
needs to be extended it as well.  

For example, I would like to see a section giving lots and lots of
examples of preferred MathML markup.  For example, do you do

 <msup> <mi>f</mi><mo>&prime</mo> </msup>
or 
 <mi>f</mi><mo>&prime</mo> 

And should it be

  <mrow> <mo>cos</mo> <mi>x</mi> </mrow>
or
  <mrow> <mi>cos</mi> <mo>&ApplyFunction;</mo> <mi>x</mi> </mrow>

There are scads of things like this where it would be nice to have a
preferred conventional usage.

Another thing I think would be useful would be some stress tests.

As a general question to the list, what are you doing with the test
suite, and how would you like to see it improved?
