Hmm. It appears I was confused as to which tests I had submitted. The pull  
request below is testing register*Handler and friends -- not Web  
Messaging. I haven't submitted our Web Messaging tests yet, it turns out.  
Will do so shortly, just waiting for some internal review.

That said, our tests are not identical to the Microsoft tests, and are  
likely to expose different bugs in implementations. So even for tests that  
are testing the same features, they are not necessarily duplicate tests. I  
do not volunteer to look for tests that overlap and try to merge them.  
However, I would not object if someone else were to do so, and I would be  
happy to review such changes.
