Martin, I updated the replace test to exercise the reverse_iterator.
It is here:

I think that if it is ok we might want to make some changes to
StringTestCase and StringTestCaseData (copy constructable?) structures
to create new structure more easily.
Also the code which reverses the substring may be moved to the test

What do you think about this?

I'm not sure I understand why that would be a problem. If the driver
replaced the whole tcase structure with one created to match the
expected result when reverse_iterator is used why would rw_match() or
rw_expand() care? (The driver would have to expand the hardcoded source
string and argument in order to figure out the new expected result).

Suppose the test case is:

   string ("abcdef").insert (begin() + 2, first, last);

with the range denoted by the offset into the string and the number of
characters, extent, like so: (offset == 1) and (extent == 3). The test
invokes insert with (first == begin() + offset) and (last == begin() +
offset + extent). The test invokes insert with (first == begin() +
offset) and (last == first + extent) and expects the result to be the
hardcoded "abbcdcdef".

When the driver gets around to exercising reverse_iterators it changes
the offset so that (new_offset == str_size - offset -
extent) and the expected result to "abdbccdef". The test invokes the
function with (first = rbegin() + new_offset) and (last == first +
