Depending on the amount of energy you're willing to dedicate to this,
the ideal option could well be to import those tests into the
web-platform-tests repo and then into WebKit.
Note that I've heard reports in the past that some browsers tried to
align with the spec but couldn't. The problem is that many of the
discrepancies are difficult to feature-detect so that an awful lot of
rich text editing code out there branches off UA identification. As a
result, fixing bugs that bring browsers more in line with one another
breaks the Web.
I'd love to hear indication that this is less of a SNAFU than previously
reported. If not we might be stuck and in need of a more radical solution.
