No point in provoking an issue either (unless that's deliberate) - TLAs
have been trademarked (WWF, for example). Google haven't registered the
CTS trademark, but they could certainly argue that in the field of test
suites for mobile platforms that CTS is their trademark and MeeGo is

I suspect that people won't use "core test suite" for anything unless
there is at least one other test suite that could be used in the same
context. More likely "My app passed the test suite" is as specific as
you're likely to get (or perhaps "the conformance tests").
