I guess that in such a case, it is ok to change the test since we are no longer tracking it from a remote source. In an ideal world, changing the test so that FAIL disappears from the expectations files would be nice.
But this is probably a low priority.

I created bug 161036 to create Mac specific expectations for those tests.
It seems ok to me to have the "best" expectation files as the generic baseline.
