Yes, but with public test servers and/or open source test services.
Simple ones could test edge cases that don't require complex
environment setup (e.g., signing with the wrong private key, vs.
CRIME/BEAST), but with some sophistication even CRIME/BEAST could be
done.  I could imagine a wifi router hacked to provide a wasp nest...
just download a wasp image, install, power up, test.
