I don't know any problem on using the latest or any development versions
of NUnit under Mono in the same way as .NET users do i.e. install his or
her favorite versions of it in the GAC.

That is irrelevant to what Mono team uses. It blocks no one from using
other versions. Or people can even overwrite the pre-installed version.
