I agree with Emmanuel w.r.t. creating protocol-[XYZ]-unit modules for
integration tests specific to a given protocol.  For integration tests
that test the collaboration of multiple protocols, such as SASL
GSSAPI/Kerberos and DNS TSIG GSSAPI Kerberos that we would continue to
place them in server-unit.  If this is OK, I'll create the modules as
I add tests.

FYI, you may see me commit some tests initially to my sandbox so I can
pass them between my laptop and main development machines to test
various platforms and VMs.
