These results compare user agents against each other.  The testdata is 
provided for reference.

I am not of the opinion that the testdata should be treated as anything 
other than as a proposal at this point.  Or to put it another way, if 
browser behavior is converging to something other than what than what 
the spec says, then perhaps it is the spec that should change.

web-platform-tests is huge.  I only need a small piece.  So for now, I'm 
making do with a "wget" in my Makefile, and two patch files which cover 
material that hasn't yet made it upstream.
