My answer is no too, but for another reason. The dilution of the TR 
space. The TR space is really perceived outside as something which is 
really important, by the information it can contain. (Another issue 
with that, is the presence of the "Note" document in the TR space).

So I'm much more in a favor of another place. Two possibilities:
	- a directory in the QA/ webspace reserved for test suites.
or	- a directory in each activity reserved for test suite.

	Examples:
	http://www.w3.org/DOM/Test/
	http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Test/
	http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Test/

I think the second solution is better. Because most of the time the 
test suite is under the responsibility of the WG itself.
