I do think test automation is way more valuable than putting a lot of  
effort into running this manually. Apparently we already did the work for  
the HTML set of tests, but keeping those up to date is more work than it  
would be if we had reftests.

Unfortunately I was not present at this F2F discussion everyone keeps  
referring to, but I do not think it is worth it to try rushing to REC  
while the test suite is in the state it is in. That does not at all seem  
like a productive use of time of our collective resources.
