Not if the VM has bugs and/or limitations, and not if the tests in question
specifically test VM functionality.  If the VM is buggy then potentially any
and all tests can fail.  But more generally useful is several sets of tests
that test VM functionality such as CroquetVMTests CogVMTests
IslandVMTweaksTestCase STackVMTest Win32VMTest FFIPluginTests
FloatMathPluginTests JPEGReadWriter2PluginTest MiscPrimitivePluginTest
CompilerTests (mirror primitive tests).  (Yes, these need rationalizing, but
this takes time). Then as far as platform independence goes, things like the
FFI and OSProcess are windows into platform specific behaviour, and so one
can't expect platform independence.
