I'm not sure what you mean exactly here, but the tests on GH will get 
mirrored to w3c-test.org as they did previously so everything should 
work just the same (except that we now get a version control system 
that's actually usable, and a good submission process).

Yes, that is being set up.

To make things simpler for contributors, resource management, 
documentation, etc. and to avoid the per-WG split that makes no sense 
outside of the organisation.

I'm not sure what you mean here, can you please clarify?

No, they will be made read-only and won't be synced (at least that's the 
case with the HTML test suite). They essentially become historical and 
obsolete.

That depends on the test suite. Whoever is transitioning a test suite 
should make it clear that people should stop committing to hg whenever 
they start transitioning. For the HTML TS, that's already the case.
