They don't necessarily need to be in *one* common directory, but it
seems helpful to have them separated so that importing can be done
easily (including dealing with test removal, which certainly happens
sometimes as a result of spec changes).

I think it's also perhaps been useful to have some concept of
ownership, given that we don't (I think) have the resources to deal
with updating tests for spec changes in a better way, when
implementors are updating to match the same spec change at different

Then again, I don't think any of the specs for which we've
contributed tests in this way have advanced through the process yet,
so it might be too early to judge the overall result.
