I'd be very happy to be part of the regtest / benchmarking project.
And even lead it if no one else more suitable steps forward.
Anyone else want to be involved?
All contributions gratefully received ;)

Any suggestions for the name of such a project?
My suggestion is OWASP WAVE (Web Application Vulnerability Examples) -
although I guess some people might confuse it with the defunct Google
