If we had this, it would allow me to fix 142258 <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=142258> and 146523 <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=146523>.

Bug 142258 also serves as an example for why we shouldn't do this. Both known reasons for it are actual bugs that needed to be discovered, and need to be fixed.

What are the causes for flakiness in bug 146523?
