This came up during a F2F meeting we had in Mountain View a couple of
months ago.

We thought it would be a good idea to add a new JS helper file which
contains a list of common operations like this, and let each UA
override its functions in their (potentially private) test environment
to ensure the desired effect.

For example, we can add style-helper.js with code like this:
StyleHelper = {
    updateStyle: (element) => { element.getBoundingClientRect() }

If we let UA test environment override StyleHelper, each engine can
use its own proprietary test-enviornment-only mechanism to force a
style update on the element.
