   Creating and maintaing cross-platform results is a real challenge  
in some cases. With HTMLMediaElement tests, for example, we have to  
deal with the fact that different ports uses different backend media  
engines and not all ports support support the same file formats and  
codecs. This means it can be impossible to predict results without  
actually running a tests in each port. Having a try server would be  
quite helpful for these types of tests.
