Actually, it’s fine to test with such flags/options enabled, and to
generate reports of test results from test runs with those enabled.

That’s because at least at this point the main goal, as far as W3C progress
of the spec is concerned, is just to document that it’s possible to
independently implement the spec (by having at least two UAs that have
conforming implementations of each requirement in the spec).

It’s not a goal that the tests must demonstrate that support for any
particular requirement has actually shipped and is exposed to all users by
default without being behind a flag or some other opt-in mechanism.
