Yeah, somehow I figured it out by myself after I wrote my mail. However, 
this means that, in order to test this conversion I need to pass an 
instance of a subclass of Datatype to the DynamicSelectionList 
constructor, and the only way to get one is via the DatatypeManager and 
in turn that requires having an Avalon ServiceManager. Is that correct?

Unfortunately, for unit testing, we only have an 
AbstractCompositeTestCase which extends ExcaliburTestCase, which 
implements Composable and not Serviceable, right?

So, what do we do? Do we implement a ServiceableTestCase or do we forget 
about unit testing Woody components? And what about other components 
after the migration from ECM to Fortress is completed in Cocoon 2.2?

I'm feeling somewhat lost here. I didn't figure unit-testing Cocoon was 
so hard :-(.
