I think the potential of more automated sync and two-way sync with Web Platform Tests is great.

I also agree with Alexey and Ryosuke. It needs to be easy to run this type of test, including loading it in the browser. And managing the merge should not impose extra burdens on the person developing a patch. Our regression test requirement already imposes a significant (but important!) burden and we shouldn't make it worse.

The extra work should be done either by an automated system or by a person who is focused on doing periodic merges.
