I do not have experience with ROS 2, but your points regarding integration testing sound valid.

> Do above tests make sense?

Yes, at least for the major part. I have been working on random testing and property-based testing myself, at the node/integration level, although for ROS 1.

I had this idea of expanding mutation testing in ROS, in which the ROS primitives could be mutated themselves in a meaningful way (i.e. redirecting topics, messing with queue sizes, changing callback functions to a simple *skip* or *abort*), although I am not sure how useful that would be in practice.

Is there any advantage to packing all these different kinds of tests into a single framework? It could prove hard to do so in a way that is intuitive for the user.
