Do we ever need a test suite

I am working on the last missing pieces in Lark (PE processing, yecch), and 
is it ever becoming obvious that we need a test suite.  Michael 
Sperberg-McQueen made a few beginnings on this some time back, producing 
the invaluable torture.xml (can *your* parser do that one?).  I remember
that way back when, Omnimark produced this massive SGML test suite
on CD-ROM as I recall.  If someone wanted to do the same for XML, they'd
be doing the world a service, and there might even be some money in it.
