Using filenames as some kind of identifier worries me greatly. Not only do I
think that requiring uniqueness is an undue burden, I am also concerned that it
doesn't capture the full informtion required to load a test. In particular some
tests will require specific query strings or fragment identifiers. Therefore
the only way to correctly identify a test is by its URL and name (for
javascript tests) or URL and reference URL (for reftests). We got this wrong in
our internal TC management system and the impdedance mismatch between the parts
that incorrectly assume tests are directly related to files on the filesystem
and the parts that correctly assume tests are identified by the given,
URL-containing, tuples is a frequent source of problems.
