The work was done by several of us (DanBri, Libby ...) then adopted by 
DAWG (Steve, Lee, Jeen), Eric added annotation support for noting 
intersting facts and the rdf:type got added (syntax test, bad synatx 
test, query test).

      [  mf:name    "Path-01" ;
         rdf:type   mfx:TestQuery ;
         [ qt:query  <path-01.arq> ;
           qt:data   <data-1.ttl> ] ;
         mf:result  <path-01.srx>

The structure of tests needs tweaking but it is basically there: 
action-result, where the action has query-specific vocab for dataset 
description and the query itself.

What could work for update is the same overall theme:

graph store - update script - result

where the result is an NQuads file (lowest implementation cost).  The 
dataset description would work for a graph store, I think, including 
empty graphs (with care).

You can get to all the scripted test via:


but there isn't scripted support for update.
