It isn't clear to me why Checkpoint 5.1 explicitly mentions "reusable by 
accredited third parties for testing purposes"  As the first checkpoint in 
Guideline 5, I think this part of the checkpoint is misleading and 
misplaced.  Test materials may never be used by accredited third parties 
(i.e., CSS validator, many of the WAI Tools - bobby).  Why imply that 
limitation.  Test materials are useful to developers as them build their 
implementations and individuals checking out their content or ability of 
their broswer and tools.

I suggest removing that part of the checkpoint.
