Not necessarily. You may also define a profile that activates the additional 
tests (and the additional dependencies for your large test files).

AFAICS Ted proposed one artifact for the test files i.e. the (large) 
archives you will operate on in your tests. That's also possible, but I'd 
not recommend it, since I expect you probably will never change them again, 
while a combined ZIP artifact with all the test files *will* change (every 
time you add a new one).
