I think if somebody is writing a testharness.js test and it does *not* require
the WPT server, it should be tested as a file URL.
This would imply putting it outside of LayoutTests/wpt though, right?

Let me make it even more clear what I'm trying to defend. An ad-hoc custom test
that uses no "framework" but is entirely self contained.

I think it's valuable for engineers to be aware of the "frameworks" like
testharness.js and js-test, and familiar with the facilities they provide, but
to not necessarily imply that using any framework is expected.
