Start at the bottom? A basic 1.0 transformer and standard docbook?
I know Norm et al have test files. How about finding a way to check
the actual with expected output (using either XSLT 1 or 2 and 'some
form' of checking). Once you start to build up a series of tests that
is looking promising, then address integration of a test suite? 
Perhaps using ant or bash or ..... whatever?
   With your (reasonable IMHO) basic Is this there (attribute/element)
   then I think this approach quite reasonable and XSLT (Schematron?)
   should suffice without buying xml diff tools.
