I thought about this and agree that this is problematic. Given that the  
main code is more stable maybe we could move to a model where it is not

we currently fail on trunk instead of trying to develop tests and code  
side by side.

This would remove the need for the tests to be independent of the  
implementation. If people still prefer stability for their implementation  
in the html5lib trunk tree they could make a copy of the test suite and  
merge that everytime the test suite changes while updating their
