I find it quite verbose (well, it's Java) and too hard for an "ordinary" 
QA volunteer, who could probably write a simple ODT file to check a 
bugfix in formula handling but couldn't write a Java testcase.

Of course, this approach has also huge benefits, like automation.

Perhaps it is possible to convert a few key test cases, like Regina's 
ODT file in the blocker bug to this framework? 
In this case we have the advantage that we know the expected result, so 
ExpectedData() needn't be reimplemented in Java, but it can just 
function as a simple operand->result mapping.
