I agree with @bzbarsky. Tests are supposed to test normative requirements defined by the spec. While tests are a great help to interoperability, it’s actively harmful to have the tests checks for things that are not normative requirements of the spec. Normally, when it’s noticed that a test checks for something not in the spec, either the spec is fixed to specify what’s intended, or the test is removed or modified. That is how other WGs do it. WebAuthentication should not be an exception to that normal flow.
