I vaguely remember hearing about ert-buffer.el at some point.  I don't
have enough time to investigate its usefulness myself, so I can only
judge it based on how much it's used.

One way to show its usefulness would be to write a patch for Emacs's
test/automated subdirectory showing how it lets us simplify those tests.

I think if such a library is useful, then it belongs in Emacs's core
rather than in GNU ELPA, since we'd probably want to use it for Emacs's
own tests.
