I can imagine underwater explosions to be hard or impossible to detect, but underground explosions surely will have left something "altered", eg a subsidence crater http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subsidence_crater . Besides these 2, there are 2 other types of tests: atmospheric and exoatmospheric. The atmospheric tests include those aimed at the surface like tower, balloon, low altitude free fall, including traces that can be surveyed, but the exoatmospheric tests cannot be surveyed and I agree, shouldn't be in OSM.
