If you feel strongly about this, we should probably start a webkit-dev thread on the subject.  Because most other reviewers I know prefer doing tests like this with script-tests and factoring out as much code as possible into support libraries.  (I actually didn't realize that anyone was advocating keeping them independent and such.  I definitely agree there are some merits to doing so, but I think there are more benefits to keeping tests compact and easy to read.)
