For "test the web forward" I want to start gathering/generating reftests.

I *think* the test framework is based on the Mozilla framework
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Creating_reftest-based_unit_tests


The tests I'm starting with are

http://web.lookout.net/2012/03/unicode-normalization-in-urls.html
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Feb/0255.html
generated from http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/urldecomp.xml  
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=479520 and http://annevankesteren.nl/2012/09/idna 
 There are also some BIDI examples in http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-iri-bidi-guidelines  once we get that far.

Anyone know of any other existing IRI/URI/URL/LEIRI tests?

For tests that push DNS we might need some other test framework
(including an DNS server which will accept requests  <anything>.site.com  where anything is an arbitrary string, 
and send request with Host header) so that I can test the IDNA conversion bits.
