Well, yes.  I'm quite prepared to convert my existing test suite 
framework to a standard framework.  But that assumes the latter is 
reasonably easy to extend and use for regression-testing.  There is no 
inherent reason why that cannot be, but I understand it might not be a 
priority for the W3C to design a more "convenient" framework.

I do suggest at least putting test cases and associated expected results 
in the same directory.  It would be nice to put catalogs in the same 
directory too, though that seems to imply some catalog nesting or 
indirection (catalog of catalogs) mechanism, since presumably one 
doesn't want all the tests in one directory.
