Note that this isn't true once we start using layoutTestController in the

Tests that we currently use LTC such as to invoke mouse events, keyboard
events, etc... are currently manual tests in W3C test suites. They use meta

English sentences. It would be good to codify this information so that we
can automate some of W3C manual tests at least in WebKit.
