Unlike the Shapiro-Wilk or the Anderson-Darling test, the 
D'Agostino test is not an omnibus test for testing the
hypothesis of normality. In fact, D'Agostino's D 
is a suitable test statistic for testing the hypothesis of 
uniformity. See 
Baringhaus and Henze (1990). 
A test for uniformity with unknown limits based on D'Agostino's D.
