Yes, they could. But if you write your own harness you presumably
lose, e.g., the advantages of all the different ways you can run the
tests via prove. And presumably you couldn't use tk-prove or whatever
It's mixing test logic into harness logic. Isn't it better for the
tests to be completely self describing and keep the harness generic?
Then your tests will work with any Test::Harness based tool and any
compatible TAP harness.
