The link takes you to the test harness for that spec section. The harness actually does do "the right thing", in that it presents the tests in the order where results are most needed, ie: those missing results are first, fails next, etc. 

The harness does need a better indication of when you've reached tests that already have results and you might as well stop (there are small existing result indicators in the upper right corner), or perhaps an "only run untested mode", if I add that mode I'll have the untested link activate it. I'm open to suggestions for improvements in the harness UI as well.
