The problem is that this documents the specs *as they are*, rather than
as you'd like to see them.  How would it have helped me figure out
there's a problem?  (It also seem way too complex to make for a good
guideline for developers.)

Then maybe the test-engine needs to split in two parts: One that knows
about DrScheme (and which can have translations), and one that doesn't.
It seems Kathy has already catered to that scenario the way the modules
in collects/test-engine are organized.

A comment might help idle readers like me figure out that you consider
this undesirable.
