I agree there is some inconsistency. Both technically are "PREREQUSITES" however one requires setup before running the test and the other can be done on the fly. If we do a readme.txt solution we still need to notify the tester that the test requires some server setup to run correctly.

I also there is one other test that I can think of that has a similar pattern in Chapter 5 (lang-selector-005). We should make sure that the final solution is done on both files.
