You need a standard to write the unit test for ....

If I look at the all the unittests in python itself. What is your guess:

How many (percentage) exist to ensure the compatibility with a standard, and how many exist
to ensure things work and bugs don't appear again?

Unittest can be written to ensure a road map or "rough consensus and working code".
