This may not be best idea but here it is. I do maintain Linux Test
Project that starts to get more attention lately and is actively used
for QA testing for several major distributions.

So if there are tests that would match the purpose of LTP and if the
tests were isolated to run separately we may add them to LTP too. Some
more work would be needed to make this happen. However if the tests
would be included in LTP they will get into QA deparments in next LTP
release and will be executed as a part of the distribution QA process.
