I don't think that addresses my primary concern. It's very important to
signal to the rest of the world that a single port of WebKit doesn't
represent the entirety of the WebKit project for the purpose of WPT pass
rate or any other standards compliance.

We already had a discussion about how how Apple should provide JSC binary
on Linux despite of the fact Apple does not maintain any port on Linux:

I don't think we want to add more confusion to the situation by different
ports of WebKit using the WebKit logo on wpt.fyi or any other place for
that matter.
