collection of unit tests for various features of the language. If not, what
are you guys (back-end & front-end developers) using to test your code?

I use an internal test suite. Unfortunately, due to it being an unholy amalgamation of bits and pieces, the license of it is unclear and so I can't publish it. But a good start would be to compile phobos and run all the unit tests.

I guess it's a matter of creating a tester for each corner of the spec and covering various cases. Here's an idea. Let's all get together and develop a suite of unit tests. Of course, cleaning up the remaining bugs/unclarities in the spec itself would certainly help.... I suppose some of the bug testcases that have been posted on D and here could serve as a starting point....
