Yes, tests for behaviour around navigation and unload should go in the 
HTML testsuite[1]. There are some guidelines for writing tests at [2], 
but they appear in need of an update to reflect the fact that we now use 
git[hub] rather than mercurial.

If you have any questions, please ask, either on the 
public-html-testsuite list, or in the #whatwg channel on Freenode or on 
the #testing channel on the W3C IRC server.
