For all kinds of HTML5 test cases, it would be very useful to have a  
machine-readable annotation of whether the document is supposed to be  
conforming even if the test case has been written for another purpose  
such as browser testing. (This could be considered to be part of  
"expected results" but for test written for other purposes it may not  
automatically be.)
