True, but not really the answer to the current question.

As discussed on irc, the de-facto standard is to use a MANIFEST file with

manual foo.html

to indicate that a test is manual.

That works with Mozilla's infrastructure at least and since they seem to 
be one of very few people actively importing W3C tests it makes sense to 
use a system that works for them.
