Well, ideally, yes.  But to verify that the user is actually seeing
what they're supposed to, as opposed to just computed values being
correct, you need some type of reftest.  If browsers don't support
automatic running of animated reftests, then they have to be manual.
(IE and Opera don't support automatic running of *any* reftests, do
they?)
