Having taken some of the responsibility for this issue, I wish to place it
back onto the agenda.

Summary
Earlier discussions have focused on the possibility of automating the test
cases by synthesizing IndieUI abstract events and verifying that the listeners
are called appropriately. We've considered using the W3C's testharness.js for
this.

There are also tests under development as part of the WebKit implementation of
the spec, and it's an open question whether and how to adapt these for use in
a generic (implmeentation-independent) test suite.

An alternative strategy would be to use a testing tool that can generate
events at the operating system level - a more complicated solution, which
however has the advantage of establishing that the user can initiate the
events through UI actions.
