Wrong order.

The tests are required in order to approve the patch. The current
behavior may be bad (in some/most cases and/or wrt fx 2.0) but some
applications, including Mono itself, can depend on it.

The tests should include
- using an assembly name with a public key
- using an assembly name without a public key
- using an assembly name from a dynamic assembly (created using SRE)
- serialization/deserialization
and should be tested against both Fx 1.1 and 2.0.

The source code of mscorlib.dll and System.dll should also be checked to
ensure nothing depends on a null check for this value.
