I've inserted the instruction declaring the "no red" requirement line at the
top of all the files.  I assume that it would be wrong to insert it as a
link element, as the guidelines indicate not to put the expected result
information in the <link rel="assert"> elements.

Yes, I wondered about the best wording to use because it's sort of like
inheritance but not.

I've changed them all, but obviously the title of the last test still
mentions inheritance because that's exactly what it's testing.
