It would be a good idea to drop in the test suite wholesale. On the other hand, it's likely that most of this will turn into the official W3C test suite for the XMLHttpRequest spec. So we should either wait a bit, or be vigilant to avoid adding the same tests twice when we drop in the official test suite.

One possibility would be to make this a subdirectory of http/tests/xmlhttprequest.
