Well, I screwed up here.

The survey meant to end up as:

1. Do we put new test suites for CSS WG specs in versioned directories:

a. Yes

b. No


2. Where do new test suites for CSS WG specs go:

a. At the top level

b. In css/

c. Either at the top level or in css/, with no preference between either
except for being consistently in one

d. Up to the editor of the individual spec as to whether they want to
use the CSS WG tooling


3. Do we move existing tests to match the above:

a. Yes

b. No


4. Where do we run the extra CSS-only lints:

a. Only in css/

b. In all directories containing tests for CSS WG specs

c. Nowhere (and almost certainly break the CSS WG's tooling)


And the CSS WG's preference is 1: b, 2: b, 3: a, 4: a/b (they're
identical given previous answers).

I believe the preference of the WPT admins is 1: b, 2: a, 3: a, 4: c
(this is essentially "remove all special-casing for CSS testsuites").
