My concern is 1) make work and 2) overhead of deciding what has to be
tested where. E.g. tests for the ProgressEvent interface test quite a
bit of IDL related requirements, where do they go? From a distance it
might all appear modular, but it really is all quite interconnected
and by creating artificial boundaries that interconnectedness might
not get testing.
