There's a bunch of reasons why the CG might think existing tests aren't
appropriate (e.g.: can't be automated, to long to run, etc.). I'd like to
avoid having to list everyone one of them in the charter.

 Maybe this needs yet more clarifications. Tests need to be contributed to
W3C (there's no existing concept of per group contribution, nor would that
be desirable, imho). Their best home happens to be the group in which
their relevant spec is (or was) developed. Happy to consider an alternate
phrasing that captures our intent better.

Best,
