For any 'border-radius' reftests, it is possible. You just include a
dummy reftest like the one I come up with. The question is, doing that
seems to obscure the real test and so I would not think it is a good idea.

The test is

Is the part that you consider extreme and edge actually the "dummy" part?

I am not getting this. Commenting out 'border-radius' in this test would
still satisfly "The test passes if the rectangle has four square corners
(no red is shown)." How does it fail non-capable-CSS3-border-radius

We could do that, but aren't reftests supposed to not to require human

What do we do for test cases like these then? Do we have a list of these
