Of course.  If there is a new implementation of an interface,
it is even more valuable to test it with the old implementation's
tests, to get an understanding of the difference between the
implementations, such as what differences are bugs, intentional,
or otherwise acceptable.

In any case, it is (almost) impossible to have too many tests. The
Kawa testsuite includes tests from all kinds of sources.
