The three failing tests are:

1) "Navigator interface: attribute battery": This is because Navigator 
is not a WebIDL interface in Gecko yet.

2) "BatteryManager interface: existence and properties of interface 
prototype object": This is a bug in the harness and in the test.  In the 
test because it has:

   interface BatteryManager : EventTarget {

but never defines the EventTarget interface.  And in the harness because 
it doesn't just say that your IDL is invalid but happily proceeds to 
build a broken data model and then operate on it.

3) "Stringification of navigator.battery": this is the same issue as #2. 
  The harness is looking for an inherited stringifier, but the 
inheritance model is busted because EventTarget is not defined, so it 

ccing Ms2ger because I'm not quite sure where the harness bugs should be
