Q: Acceptable use policy for recurring testing?

RE: Q: Acceptable use policy for recurring testing?
I suggest taking a look at BrowserMob's or NewRelics 30 day trials depending on where you are optimizing. I find NewRelic is good if you are trying to optimize the application itself. Browsermob tends to provide better data for front-end/server optimization efforts.

I find that spot testing can often give you the wrong impression. I've seen metrics vary by as much as 20% within the same time (e.g. 9AM weekday) when doing ongoing testing. I've also seen 10% variance around such tests.

Also, don't get hung up on the grades and pay attention to the details. The waterfall charts are some of the most informative data you can get with webpagetest.org.

Many of the other checks are simpler optimizations for which the tool provides quick and easy way to test.
