I discussed this w3C internally - here is some feedback:

- Common output formats are very much encouraged, to enable automatic
testing. A question from me: do you assume an "artificial" output like at
http://www.w3.org/International/its/tests/ , or some "real life" formats
like XLIFF?
- Some of our implementations are likely to produce output that can only be
tested by humans, e.g. the "online MT systems". So we should try to push
the limits with the common output and automatic testing, but like e.g. in
CSS rendering, in some cases humans need to be involved.

Same like the human readable tests - if we have tests that describe for
humans what to check, we can use these for the above case.

Would the above work for you?

W3C is working on a testing framework - I am still following up on what we
can use in this area. Stay tuned.
