It's basically impossible to regression test swsusp except to release it.
Its success or failure depends on exactly the driver combination/platform/BIOS
version etc. e.g. all drivers have to cooperate and the particular
bugs in your BIOS need to be worked around etc. Since that is quite fragile
regressions are common.

However in some other cases I agree some more regression testing
before release would be nice. But that's not how Linux works. Linux
does regression testing after release.
