You can always use Perl to make higher-level tests. I'm always writing little subroutines in test suites that capture a higher level testing concept.
Of course you can write higher level tests in perl. What I was trying to get at was writing higher level tests in a language thats a higher level then perl (such as english or some subset thereof).
Maybe it's not possible and maybe even if it was possible theres no real win. After thinking about it for a while it occurs to me that such a system would be very close to a programming-language-as-english, which doesn't exist now and despite several attempts doesn't appear to be coming any time soon.
