For better communication, we should have good names for each 'reftests'. Lets call that.
1. 'non-w3c reftests', which is already supported in WebKit.
2. 'w3c reftests'

The naming convention of '-expected.html' and '-expected-mismatch.html' came from the discussion of  bug 36065. That convention should only be used for non-w3c reftests.
At that time of the discussion, w3c reftests format had not appeared.

'-ref.html' and '-notref.html' convention should be preserved for w3c reftests.
Once we can support w3c reftests, there is no reason to write non-w3c reftests for new tests.
'non-w3c reftests' should be deprecated.

In addition, it looks like the WG is recommending that the reference files be named as -ref.html or -notref.html, so we could check for the existence of those filenames as well and only parse the file looking for a link as a last resort.

> To your second point, if the W3C versions use -ref.html and -notref.html, perhaps we should rename ours from -expected.html and -expected-mismatch.html. I've found that everyone I explain reftests to is a little confused by these names. -ref and -notref might be more clear since it's clearly about reftesting.
