Thanks Ryosuke, this was definitely a worthwhile trip for me! I was
especially encouraged to see that the focus on engine-specific tests
resonated and in fact that there was already work in motion to look
into it.

While smoother import/export wasn't a big topic and not seen as urgent
by anyone on the WebKit side, I think the extra friction would soon
become evident when trying to address WebKit-specific failures at
scale. Pablo at Igalia is look into the options for this now, and
feedback from the wider WebKit community would be great:

We also intend to publish our methodology for the 'browser-specific failures' graph by the end of the year (including making it easy for anyone to run the same analysis).
