Long term, WebDriver should help up solve this problem. 

Short term, we need a way to identify such tests and avoid running them in an automated fashion.

Now, browser vendors have frameworks for automating such tests and some things are even standardised but as far as I know there is no common standard for how to add interactive tests to the W3C test suites. Should I make a folder named "interactive" and put them there, list them in a special manifest, or just ignore the problem that they might be run and fail in automated test runs?
