I think this is a good approach. I think the testers should know how
much time they're going to be spending on the test, but I also agree we
don't want to stress them out and rush them, so I think the statement
Stephanie came up with is fine to mitigate the potential issue there.

We don't need to add any specific tasks though, just as a note. I was
thinking the non-english/US install testers would basically be given
open reign over the UI, which is an okay methodology and not without
precedent.
