Yes, a systematic check of the proposed optimal antiderivatives in the test suite with the ones given in Timofeev's book may well turn up some simpler ones. But having authored 2 of the systems being tested, I am obviously a partisan in the symbolic integration wars.

So instead of me, several members of the computer algebra community should conduct a systematic check of the entire Charlwood and Timofeev test suites to ensure they are optimal and unbiased. I would happy to provide such a validation committee with machine readable copies of the proposed test suites in the syntax of several popular CA systems.
