Are the tests somewhere public?  We wouldn't want to duplicate effort.
 You can put them in an incoming/ directory if you don't want to
officially submit them yet.

It's not proprietary -- there's a spec, and it's in WD just like
transitions/animations themselves.  Of course, if tests would use
requestAnimationFrame, UAs that don't support it wouldn't be deemed to
not support transitions/animations properly because of it.  Those
tests would apply only to UAs that supported both
transitions/animations and requestAnimationFrame.
