Is there a deep reason
why Emacs currently has test/ as a separate top-level directory?
Because the test files are not to be distributed with the tarball.
Why not? Isn't it true that whenever someone builds Emacs from source, it's possible that they are using a configuration (GCC version, configure flags, etc.) that hasn't been tested extensively, and it would make sense for them to run Emacs' self-tests before they waste their time installing an unstable Emacs? This seems to apply especially to the pretest tarballs, but also to the regular distribution to some extent.
