I would go for something verbose in a easy to understand format. E.g.
{ test: 'fast/html/keygen.html',
  platform: 'mac, linux',
  bug: 'webkit.org/b/66666',
  expectedResults: ['crash', 'text', 'image'],
  action: 'skip' }

For the tests that need rebaseline or new results, I would leave them
out of the file.
I would use an second file, with entries sorted by bug number.

I don't know all the problems related to test_expectations so that is
just some ideas from what I encountered in the past.
