RDF4J has several tests related RDF*/SPARQL*, though currently none in the
W3C manifest form (they could be converted to that probably), for example:

  Test cases specific to parsing SPARQL* queries and updates
  Test cases for basic handling of RDF* data in a triplestore, as well as
basic SPARQL* queries
   test cases for working with the extended Turtle* format

   Test cases for extended SPARQL Json Query result format (RDF4J, Jena,
and Stardog variants)

Caveat that a lot of it is specific to RDF4J functionality (e.g. testing
fallback mechanisms in case a database or parser does not support RDF* or

An agreed-upon set of generic test cases in manifest form would be useful,
though I fully suspect that we will opening ourselves up to a lot of
confusion and conflicting views, as most implementations seem to have very
diverging ideas on what RDF*/SPARQL* is (or isn't). But perhaps that's all
to the good :)
