>running the testsuite should be as simple and regular as possible

That suggests that it's better for the test suite to use the output format that
most processors are likely to generate from their everyday serializers, for
example <a/>, rather than the canonicalized form which is <a></a>.

But I'm probably influenced by the fact that I chose not to use
canonicalization as my comparison method: instead (assuming string comparison
fails) I use a customized variant of the deep-equal() function applied to the
two node trees.
