Electronics companies treat their simulation/emulation models for their devices as their deepest, darkest secrets; often such models can't even be shared with other employees of the same company without considerable bureaucracy.
Maybe the best thing is to equip a testing laboratory (say OSDL) with a whole lot of oddball hardware, so they can do the tests. This will cost money, but money could be raised (and we might be able to persuade hardware manufacturers to contribute some hardware).
