The support files do need to be moved into a 'support' directory, but the reference files do not need to be moved. 

While it's my personal preference that reference files are placed in a 'reference' directory, so long as they follow the proper naming conventions (ref-*, *-ref, notref-*, *-notref) they can be in the same directory as the test. Note that the build system will always place them in a 'reference' directory in the build output (and correct the <link> paths).
