I'd argue that we should not encourage people from writing reftests until
we migrate those two ports to NRWT and
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60605 is fixed given all but
Chromium port's bots run pixel tests.

In fact, I'd strongly discourage people from writing reftests for features
that are enabled on all ports until the above two conditions are met.
