Completely agree with you with regards to Chrome.

As for Presto, it is certainly of quickly declining relevance, but there are still a few areas where it supports features not supported in other browsers, or conforms better than other browsers. I think we should keep it for a while longer. As it provides useful information to the people working on the spec or the tests.

Besides, there's nothing wrong with a little tongue-in-cheek challenge to other browsers ("Even old Presto gets this right!").
