Correct. The rules are:
Support files in a 'support' directory.
Reference files in a 'reference' directory (preferred), or have 'ref-' or 'notref-' filename prefix, or have '-ref' or '-notref' filename suffix (this will be expanded shortly to allow '-ref-' or '-notref-' within the filename).
Everything else is considered a test case.

Tests and references (in HTML or a known XML dialect) will be expected to have metadata in an HTML namespaced <head> element (this will be modified shortly for SVG to allow a different metadata container).

I'll try to get to that today or the next few days

Note that we currently expect spec links in test cases to be to the version last published at http://www.w3.org/TR/, not drafts at dev.w3.org/csswg. So you'll have to update those links anyway (but wait until I update Shepherd).

There's been some discussion about allowing links to draft specs and having the build system adjust links on output, but there's nothing in place to support that yet, and the current general feeling is to disallow draft links to encourage more frequent publishing of drafts.
