Following on slightly from James Graham's comment about metadata for tests,
is there a policy for testing (or not) areas of the spec which are still 
subject to open bug reports (or other reasons for possible change)

I have just pushed


http://test.w3.org/html/tests/submission/DavidCarlisle/math-parse02.html

Not to ask for formal approval (yet) but to get clarification on policy. 
This is testing innerHTML on math
which is the subject of bug 11204, currently the file has the 
unstructured comment

<!--
THIS TEST ASSUMES THAT
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=11204
IS RESOLVED
-->

But some structured way of denoting which part of the spec and/or 
resolution of issues a test depends on would be good I think.
