It's a matter of striking a balance between 'proving everything works' 
and going over the top with a separate test for every last thing. I 
lumped the IRI constraints together as a compromise on this. It's only 
in/excludepathcontains and in/excluderegex that's allowed more than once 
anyway - the rest are all 0 or 1.

If you have a good test to hand, good - use it, but let's not over do it!
