Yes, that is it exactly. Presumably that's by design - as NRWT currently 
won't use anything like *-ref.htm unless it's in a manifest.

It would be good if this was allowed. It would allow us to import the 
reftest.list from the CSS test suite while keeping our own reference 
results in there for tests in the suite that don't have them yet.
