Generally speaking, I think that it's not worth it making existing tests pretty for the sake of prettiness or even consistency. It is very easy to lose some intended non-obvious properties of tests that way, as well as to lose unintended testing. We certainly don't want to only test HTML and JS code that adheres to WebKit style guide!

There are certainly many situations where it makes great sense to rework tests. Making results cross-platform (for example by switching to text-only or to reftests) is something that is always very welcome.
