Comment(by wmb at firmworks.com):

 What failure mode do you have in mind that would be caught by the
 extensive suite of tests cited above?  It seems to me that extensive tests
 as described would be susceptible to false positives due to server
 misconfiguration or other causes unrelated to hardware failure.  My
 philosophy is that the simplest test that catches the expected failure
 mode is best.  The hardware failure mode that I believe we are looking for
 is transmitter death.  That failure would be caught by an association
