Hi Bryan,

Sorry for the delayed response.  I tend to develop test to the timetable 
of the i18n WG needs, since we use the tests for formulating advice and 
outreach materials in particular. It's a lot of effort, however, so I'm 
keen to transfer whatever tests we develop to the HTML and CSS (and any 
other) test suites to avoid duplication and waste.

There isn't a formal process in place for that.

In the past i supplied copies of some tests to Fantasai, who then took 
charge of integrating into the CSS test suite.  We may well have updated 
some of those tests since, btw.

I also supplied some tests to PLH a while back for the HTML5 test suite, 
but I don't think that got far, since the test framework was still in devt.

Aharon Lanin has been providing tests for the new bidi features in HTML5 
directly to the HTML5 test suite and in parallel to the i18n test suite.

So that's a quick potted history. Upshot, there is no standard process 
in place for merging or mapping i18n tests into other tests at the 
moment, but i think it would be good to have one.

I was unsure if the i18n tests were testing those features in the context/permutations of internationalization scenarios, or whether they were tests of the basic functionality of the features as defined by the CSS specs. I was assuming (bad, I know) that CSS features would first be validated through tests of the CSSWG for the specs, so I looked there first.
