Yes, I guess what I want to avoid at all costs is the split per WG which
has boundaries that partially happen at IP level, rather than strictly at
the technology level.

Whether we end up as:

    w3c-tests/
        deviceorienation/
        html5/
        pointerevents/
        progressevent/
        xmlhttprequest/

or: 

    deviceorienation-tests/
    html5-tests/
    pointerevents-tests/
    progressevent-tests/
    xmlhttprequest-tests/

Doesn't really matter (though I do find the former more readable). What
bothers me however is how had to parse per-WG-organization is for
newcomers.
