We've had all the code to do this since 2014 (bug 134763), and yet we've never turned it on for WPT (and it was explicitly disabled from day one for WPT in bug 134764). We _did_ have this turned on for the old CSS WG test suite, prior to it getting merged into WPT; this was removed six years ago in bug 170647.

As such, unless people are manually invoking the importer with this (and presumably any such import would simply get trampled at the next re-import), this code has been entirely dead since 2017 and we should just get rid of it.

There's a real cost to rewriting tests (especially in terms of enabling export) and it seems unlikely we're ever going revert course here and start rewriting WPT.
