"Crawl, walk, and then run" would be my reason. Actually I misspoke as what I really mean is to run and _pass_ the API tests. 
Also not sure how much of the tests are feasibly on the minimal bot, but perhaps minimal but is an exception to the general rule anyway.

I also think we should include a few  - _very_ carefully selected - tests that are not testing the API per se, but should be considered part of a smoke test set - e.g. to have at least one test for <canvas>, one for workers, etc (if the existing API tests are not testing these already). I do know that these are covered by LayoutTests but I think it will be a while until we have LayoutTests running on all QtWebKit supported platforms.

Let us know if you strongly disagree on this, otherwise we can discuss the specifics as part of the patch review.
