Right, and that is very good as long as there is effort to match the
implementation with the spec.
Until the bug is fixed, regressions related to the no-longer compliant
behavior might not be caught by WPT.

Sure, it is good to test conformance, but there is no longer regression
testing on the deprecated feature behavior itself.
Ideally, this would require tighter syncing between the browsers. Might
have positive and/or negative consequences.
