Yeah, that's why I separated those tests out.

However, I don't think the things tested in 002 are controversal. In 
particular, all the UAs have converged on the behaviour tested by 002-001 
for other objects, 002-002 is explicitly required by the IDL block in 
Selectors API and I think there's no controversy over that particular 
requirement, and 002-003 is a bog-standard DOM test of one of the 
requirements in the Selectors API that doesn't really depend on WebIDL at 
all. So since everyone is converging on the behaviour tested here, it 
should be pretty safe.

Why not? I think everything in 001 is non-controversal and tests only 
things that are required by Selectors API, no?
