That's simply not the case across the board: there are multiple tiers of
testing, and the onus is on the developer to do the initial testing.

For example, when I was writing pacemakers--you better believe we tested
the *crap* out of our code. Were we the *only* ones testing? Of course not;
there were *many* levels of testing--but it *started* with us.

Yep. And when I was writing fuel pump controllers not only did *I* have a
set of tests, so did the hardware guys, so did the combination of HW/SW
guys, so did the verification group, so did whoever gave us our
certification, etc.

It's not entirely clear to me what your point is, or if you're just arguing
for the sake of arguing.

Testing is, by necessity, the responsibility of everyone involved in the
project, which includes the developer.
