I did not identify the author as I said in the introduction for the last
9 reviewed testcases.... which I am doing now:

author: Ian Hickson

And in the last testcase review:
it should have pointed to

I agree with you that the flag should be there to tell the tester that
(s)he needs to install the font before the test is run.

What if you do not have the ahem font installed and if you do get
expected results in those testcases? .. and what if, after closer
examination, nothing in those testcases seem to require to have ahem
font installed?

In any case, - just making this very clear - not one testcase has been
rejected in my review report because it was requiring the ahem font even
though it - apparently - was not needed.
