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.
