While it is common to run CSS tests in the CSS test suite in more than one
format, those tests are usually checking an assertion about the same part of
the *CSS* spec.

That's not what we're talking about here. 

I'm talking about a test in html5 format that is checking something against the
html5 spec, and another test, that happens to be testing the same assertion,
but that is testing a point in a completely different spec, such as HTML4. 

If I'm interested in reviewing the results of tests related to the html5 spec,
do i really want to see the results of tests for all the other formats that
happen to test the same thing? Probably not, most of the time. Certainly not,
if I'm trying to ascertain whether we have the two passes that are needed for
CR entry criteria for the html5 spec.
