I would love to see a collection of the types of tests that should be
performed.  As it appears now, there is nothing defined that a driver
author should do to verify that their driver performs properly, or
supports the right capabilities etc.  Some things may be difficult to
automate, but simply having a checklist would be great.  For the things
that can be automated, that would be even better.
