I would say it is good, and fairly straight forward.  The only change I
might suggest is adding "The instance is capable of installing from the
default yum repository" to expected results.  We are shipping very bare
bones instances here.  There are really 4 key requirements:

1. The system will boot
2. You can ssh into the host as ec2-user with sudo access
3. You can install packages from the yum repository
4. The system is stable in all of these tasks.
