Take this for example: http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/130416

It does not make sense to test everything through internals. In some cases,
some test go all the way through the client interfaces, to the WebKit
layer, and then back. It is good such cases are tested through the test
runner and not internals.

Example of such APIs:
-Page Visibility.

Internals is awesome, but it is not an excuse to keep DRT in bad shape.
