This should be filed as a bug in Shepherd, not in the format;
if a test belonging to a test suite uses a reference file,
then that reference file should be considered part of the
test suite.

If we added rel=help links to a reference file, they'd be
about what technology was used to build the reference...
which is very rarely what you'd want to search on!

(Note: The build system already handles this.)
