(somewhat late to this thread)

On RDF Core and WebOnt the test meta data was kept separately from the 
test data but ....

In some sense the test data is just more metadata about the test ... 
e.g. test input and expected output or whatever; while this seems more 
crucial than say test author, and test status (approved or not), it is 
more of the same.

So one point of view would be that the test is only a (semi-)structured 
record, including data and metadata.
