It is completely wrong to use anything from under the unused/ directory.
I thought this would be obvious given the name.  If you start using
those files, then you must first move them out of that directory
(to run/ if you use the files at runtime).  However, as magnum
suggested, it's better to have the test vectors compiled in instead.

I don't know about this format in particular, but in general we should
try to have self-tests and benchmarks for everything.
