Given this status, it does seem to make sense to remove the ET tests but 
I would like to hear from Philippe since I think he did some work on 
those tests. PLH - WDYT?

If you do remove the tests, do you intend to keep the minimum directory 
needed to support the Status.html file [a]? Perhaps that file should 
explain the ET and DOM4 relationship. Another option is to remove that 
file too and to add the explanation to PubStatus.

-Thanks, Art
