Nothing to vote about.

Excalibur includes an ExcaliburTestCase for just this purpose.  It provides
a mini environment and stores your Component in an ExcaliburComponentManager,
all by a simple configuration file.  If you extend it, you will be able to
test your Component's contracts.

This is the way it is supposed to be.  However, all the testcases actually
live in the test directory and not the main source code directory.

Do it ;)

Seriously, testcases are not used for the runtime of the Cocoon system, so
they can be changed as needed.  The outline you have above for test names
is consistent with what Avalon does.  This is a good thing.
