If WebKitTestRunner will no longer do that, we'll need some other way to keep these tests running.

I thought about this. I see three options:

1. Continue to enable all experimental features in testing. The downside is that we're testing something different to what we ship.

2. Have the default value only apply to testing, not to shipping. For Internal Features, instead of enabling them all, I had them revert to their default value.

3. Have some way to add the headers after importing the WPT test.

For now, I added headers to the WPT code, because there already were a bunch of tests that had such headers.
