OK, I think this makes sense.

But I still think the very best kind of test is a flat file with 10-20 lines of code in it. Particularly for debugging JavaScript issues, large wrapper frameworks get in the way.

> - Tests would be more easily upstreamable to web-platform-tests, which are run by all major browser engines. This would help a lot in terms of interoperability. As previously discussed, Gecko and Blink already do automated export of tests to web-platform-tests. I believe we should do in the same direction and contribute more tests back.

I wonder why these other projects do automated export instead of incorporating testharness.js directly.
