The lens mount would have to be rigidly mounted and aligned to be centered and perpendicular to the slide.  Misalignment would give false indication of resolution falloff on the sides of the image.  The slide would have to be a glass (or at least a glass mounted) image of a resolution chart, providing lp/mm numbers so you'd be able to compare lenses to each other and to a resolution standard you determined was acceptable.  This slide would have to have  the correct size image for 16mm or S-16 for these numbers to be accurate.

So it could be done, but it will require some good measuring and machining.
