#1481 Split out the Testing (TEST) skill change request pending

Current description has grown considerably and now encompases multiple aspects of testing in one skill

The current testing skill seems to have grown to describe a broad set of responsibilities performed by testers or test engingeers/analysts ('testers' for simplicity). In practice not all testers perform all these actions. The breadth of the current skill descriptions can sometimes results in SFIA role profiles for testers being limited to just a couple of skills. The current skill could be split into one or more covering areas such as test execution, test design, test automation, quality testing, accessibility testing/compliance.
Also need to clarify that testing will often be part of other skills to avoid over-claiming the TEST skill.

Proposed change applies to Testing
