I'm surprised no one has yet mentioned Sun's very own SISSL, which has 
been OSI approved, and I believe would be a better way of achieving what 
you want to achieve anyways.  Or at the very least, could provide a 
better template to start from.

Not allowing the test suite to be modified prevents people from fixing 
bugs in the test suite or improving it with additional tests.  Might be 
OSD conformant, but still seems like a bad idea.  IMHO.
