I strongly believe we should decide on a single way of managing bugs for 
all test suites in w-p-t (so moving the discussion to 
public-test-infra). It doesn't really matter to me whether that's done 
through github or bugzilla. Two things to consider, though:

* Some issues might span multiple test suites.
* It seems possible that we'd want to cross-reference test suite issues 
and specification issues.
* Cross-referencing commits/PRs with issues might also be useful.
