FYI, I submitted the start of a proposal for doing this here:


The goal of the proposal is to make Assembly tests language agnostic  
in the sense that a vendors would be able to run the tests against a  
runtime that supports a non-sanctioned implementation language. This  
may be difficult in some situations but it appears if the overwhelming  
majority of conformance tests could be verified in a language  
independent manner.

What do you think?

As a suggestion, it may be best to separate this discussion into two  
threads: one dealing with the proposal of a separate TC; and one  
picking up on the previous thread about how the assembly tests should  
be structured.
