One thing I think would be helpful for the test chart is a predominantly black page. Reflections are more of a problem when displaying a dark image (you get this nice dim picture of your scanner which probably isn't what you want :) )

What about using a standard digital camera test chart?

Vitorio also has some thoughts on using standard charts.

I have my reservations, but no time to write them right now.
