Yes, all the tests will be performed at all stages.

Note that there are some other criteria we should probably have tests
for, which don't exactly fall into the category of installation or
desktop (e.g. 'all services should start successfully in a default
install'). I'm not sure where to put those. If anyone has some awesomely
clever idea for combining all validation testing in a convenient way
which isn't one gigantically long page...we're all ears :)
