This sounds awesome!

Yes, that is the right choice.

The test needs to be licensed under the BSD/W3C testsuite license [1]. As 
long as all relevant stakeholders are happy with the licensing, I guess 
there isn't a problem (but I Am Not A Laywer, etc.).

Right, the next step is to upload it to the html testsuite. We use 
mercurial rather then git, but it should be quite straightforward if you 
aren't already famiiar with it. The full set of instructions are at [2].

Thanks again for this effort; I personally am really enthusiastic about 
getting more automatable tests for this area of the spec.
