The test suite should be minimizing the number of assumptions.

An HTML style sheet with 'border-collapse: collapse' as the default for
<table> elements is perfectly reasonable. It might not be the right decision
for a UA aiming to be a popular web browser, but not all CSS UAs are aiming
at that and the CSS2.1 test suite should accommodate them, too.

It does. The exact contents of an HTML default style sheet is not a testable
part of the CSS2.1 specification. There's an informative sample style sheet,
but it's there as an example, not as a recommendation or a requirement.
