At least on the EFL side I think things are good the way they are: we
have platform/efl for common stuff and platform/efl-wk1 and
platform/efl-wk2 for WK1- or WK2-specific stuff (not only
TestExpectations files but also test results). If we got rid of those
and put everything together in platform/efl, I think we'd end up with a
very big TestExpectations file and don't know what we'd do with the
occasional different results for WK1 and WK2.

It wouldn't really solve this problem, right?
