If it might be of any use, here's a doc where we hash out a lot of question
for 2-way sync in Chromium:

Linked from that is also an older doc with a lot of discussion:

When it comes to identifying which commits to export next, we look for the
most recent exported commit in web-platform-tests, map that to a Chromium
commit, and then inspect all later commits that touch
LayoutTests/external/wpt/. This scheme only works if commits are always
exported in order. Note also that commits before the most recent import can
also be candidates, because of imports racing with test changes in CQ.
Automatic imports are also blocked on all exports being finished, to not
(temporarily) revert changes.

Happy to provide more details on design and trade-offs if useful to you.
Regardless, I'm quite excited to see this happening in WebKit.
