[webkit-dev] Test conversion to use W3C testharness.js

I’m told that changes to the file are meant to be backwards-compatible. The API should not change, except to add new methods.

There is some potential issues that I wanted feedback on.
testharness.js uses a css file to format the test output. The path to this css file is assembled by the script. For the time being, I have not included the css file in the patch I attached to 80709. The CSS file has no impact when testharness.js is used along with dumpAsText as I have in the test I converted. It may provide some value, but I am going to suggest to the W3C that the CSS styling of results should move from testharness.js to testharnessreport.js (where it can be overridden).
Another concern is that changes to testharness.js in the future that break backward compatibility could then break WebKit tests. This is an issue I plan to discuss with W3C members to determine if backward compatibility can be ensured.
I'd appreciate any thoughts or feedback people have on this issue.
