Right, that makes sense. I just think that we should be careful to 
distinguish the two. The WPT repo would normally only get content that 
can be used if you're testing on your own, IMHO. This doesn't at all 
mean that it can empower actual interop testing events, e.g. by having 
the tests somehow configurable to also work in a multi-browser situation.

I say this because it has implications on implementation for WPT; it 
doesn't mean that we can't solve both.
