@tantek The original proposal would only change the semantics of when authors _may_ select a particular cursor value for their content.  There is nothing to test as far as browser behavior goes.

If the working group decides to go a step further, and also recommend changes to default user agent styles (as @FremyCompany suggests), then tests would be appropriate.  The tests should be organized with other tests of the  user agent stylesheets for HTML.  In other words, they would be probably HTML tests (not CSS) and SHOULD tests (not MUST).

(As an aside, as I go to press the "comment" button on this very page, I notice that my cursor changes to a pointer. Now, I'm not saying that GitHub is a beacon of best practices in web design, but users are used to this behavior because it is used on all sorts of sites.)
