<!DOCTYPE html>
<body style="margin: 0px">
<div style="height: 100px; width: 100px; background-color: green">

I support getting rid of pixel tests.  I suspect that some very dumb
scripts could turn large chunks of these existing pixel-tests into
ref-tests.  I doubt that those would be the interesting ones though
(where platforms have divergent results).
