Yes.  Unfortunately, the Testing Center is only updated at the same schedule as public available builds.  So, the next opportunity will be Beta (soon).  I will make sure it's on that wave.

On a side note...when we published Navigation Timing tests, from what I can tell they have always been non-vendor prefixed.  It seems that all implementations of Page Visibility currently are prefixed...how do we want to handle this?  The main test harness does not do a lookup, but I think that would be a valuable addition.  For example, in NT's wp_test function where the namespace is checked, we could have a similar function that checks document.visibilityState, and if undefined, then iterates over webkit, moz, o, and ms.

For now I will keep this self contained, but I think we might hit this again in other specs, so at some point this should really live in a more centralized location.

Excellent. Thanks :)

As the Page Visibility spec has been relatively stable, I am hoping to submit these tests soon so we can move the spec status forward.
