Is het possible to do this kind of tests in the current lilypond regression
test environment?

I don't have a comprehensive knowledge of LilyPond's tests, but I have worked 
on some of the infrastructure recently, so maybe I can help you.

As far as I am aware the 'tests' that LilyPond runs are basically using itself to compile the tests in the regression during test-baseline (and of course when you make doc) and then doing the same thing again when running make check except you get a visual difference by comparing png outputs between the two.

This is why you need a human to check any obviously poor differences rather than some minor adjustment because of, say, some spacing change.

With xml we don't such visual tests so I think that only the fact that they get compiled without complaint during test-baseline and check is enough.

At least that is how I understand it.
