If I understand you, "time" can be Now().

Why is that ? the stand_alone test suite report will have one test with an
assert for each xml test, that can pass or fail.

In this case, Maybe Andrew proposal should remove the "known failures" 
And analyzing the status of the test suite should be done through the NUnit
reports system.
My major goal is to have a unified report system, and not to have a special
report for each stand_alone test suite.
I choose NUnit report because we (mainsoft and mono) already created a
report system for NUnit reports.

Well, then how better is it?

We don't have "time" data.

"asserts" are always "1".

There are "known failures" rather than "success" which only has
"True" or "False". It would be mapped to [Category ("NotWorking")]
which is not reported in our NUnit tests. Or alternatively it
could be mapped to [Ignore], but there are another set of
ignore.lst file which holds tests to be ignored.
