The cascading is really really useful for supporting multiple different Mac OS X versions with different results, and WebKit2 as an orthogonal dimension. Perhaps one possibility is to have something like an include directive in the expectations file, so the cascading can be defined by the expectations files themselves, rather than hardcoded in scripts.
