I think for tests where we're worried that's the case, we should (for now)
just go ahead and continue using text and having separate baselines.  The
per-test cost is relatively low and the number of tests that fall into this
bucket is hopefully small?

Maybe we can come up with a new form of test that puts the explanation of

That would also work.
