For the W3C tests, this is not a problem. In fact, the tests are not
rewritten at all. The text of validateexpr-17.xq is exactly the same in
the .zip we download from w3.org and when we execute the test. Passing
the "context item" by setting the variable $input-context1 is a
supported and documented way of running the XQTS; see
So there is no need to make any changes to testdriver to support XQTS.
If we want the ability to directly test the context item for our own
testing, that's another story. But I would actually suggest that we add
such an ability to the XQuery-based test driver that is being developed,
rather than hacking yet another flag into the current testdriver.

Impossible to set context-item for rbkt test (externall)
Status in Zorba - The XQuery Processor:
Currently, there is no way to set the context item before executing an
rbkt test. Therefore, many tests of the w3c testsuite are rewritten
and the context item passed via the variable input-context1, e.g.
