Tests that rely on this wouldn't be sharable with other browsers or
usable in W3C test suites, at least based on current practice.

(I think we had some sort of agreement within some set of people
involved with W3C reftests to use 800x600.  Mozilla is currently
using 800x1000, though I'd like to switch to the smaller size.)
