I doubt it, the results would need to report success if it failed instead of the error messages, WebServers cant detect client-side browser rendering errors either so if they did code some purposely built errors it just to give that browser a lower score
The Acid3 tests have not been standardized yet hence why Microsoft will not support them with IE until they are (they dont want to split the web with standards using IE ever again like what happened before), I also noticed some tests (15) fail IE because it doesn't allow textfiles to execute scripts

And they have an Add-ons for IE8 now, but since its not open source so it will only be what M$ decides to make...... which won't be much. Or as many. Or anything for Appearance.
One of the best IE addons was IE7Pro, Its having some issues with IE8 atm though
