In pixel tests, the expected file is a checked-in image. In addition, we still have a render tree dump; it’s not just pixels.

In reference tests, the expected file is HTML; different than the test file, typically simple markup. Both files are rendered and the resulting pixels are compared. And I presume there would be no render tree dump.
