Hrm. In my view the test harness should test the real API whenever
possible. Things like DumpRenderTreeSupport are just stopgaps until
public API exists. We've probably leaned too heavily on them in the
past, but writing good API is difficult. If you find that you need to
add hidden API to pass all the layout tests, then probably you should
just add public API. It's a little hard to say without looking at the
interfaces in detail though. Perhaps you could give a small overview
of what you are considering to add?
