if I understand it correctly, the tests were only +1000 Defense and then +1000 Accuracy, but not both at the same time.
This was already done. To clarify:

There are three ways in which an Accuracy buff can be applied to a player:
1) Innate power (Trait, Skill or Console bonus - all work the same)
2) Temporary power (Buff)
3) Item Enhancement power (Accuracy mod on weapons)

The original test was done using #2 and #3 methods. Though the difference between #1 and #2 is negligible in terms of the code/data, I'll be performing more tests today to see if there's anything amiss (hah) in that functionality.

As for the Test itself, I believe you misunderstood. I was applying both +Defense and +Accuracy bonuses individually, and then combined, to witness the effects.
