Which is precisely what Dirk is proposing.  Literally the only difference
here is that the rebased test expectation would contain an optional
notation about whether we believe the new baseline to be correct or

Ports that don't care, or tests where we don't know, will be totally
unaffected.  I am not sure why this bothers you so much.  You talk about
making the infrastructure more complicated, but it doesn't seem like there
is much additional complication involved, and what minor complication is
involved is being volunteered to be handled by Dirk and other folks.
