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 don't think that's an "also", not an "instead". My understanding is that they do two-way sync with the web-platform-tests GitHub, so there's a process for downloading tests and upstreaming tests authored by their team. But they still have their own copy.
