finding revlet limits in a controlled environment

My client wants to sell revlet-based software to his customers in a
large US govt agency. If they are able to download & install the revweb
plugin, we don't know what limitations to a revlet's capabilities might
be enforced by IT in their computing environment. To answer this
question, we've built a web site his customers can use in their world
that steps them through a series of revlets that each try different
kinds of activity. The activities include:
* load the plugin and do nothing
* create, read, rename, delete a file on the local HD
* get a web URL (google.com)
* run a shell command ("dir" or "ls")
* create, delete a stack in memory; get a stackfile from a web server
* print to their printer
Those are all the tests so far. The test web site emails the revlet test
results back to me.
Now my question:
Are we testing the right things? If not, what else should we test for?
Thanks for any feedback.
