Peter, there is no css22 directory right now in
http://test.csswg.org/source/

If the test links to a section of css22, then where will that test be 
inside
http://test.csswg.org/source/
? Just asking here

In my opinion, this is not likely. People will just use a link to a spec 
(working draft, editor draft, CR, whatever here) and forget about that 
test once submitted.
