Until rev bd2cf3f640ed, it was expected to fail. Bug 918828 makes the test pass, but Nightly-only.

So either our test harness for web-platform-tests needs to support "we neither expect success nor failure for this test", or rev bd2cf3f640ed will have to be backed out when we branch for aurora, because without Symbols this test is going to fail again.

When bug 1066322 lands, the madness will be over, but I'm in no rush there.
Summary: html/dom/documents/dom-tree-accessors/document.forms.html will fail in aurora → html/dom/documents/dom-tree-accessors/document.forms.html will fail when Gecko 36 merges to Aurora
This isn't the only case where we have this problem. I don't have a better suggestion than regenerating the expectations for aurora.
Yeah, I mentioned on IRC that we already know we're going to have to do that when Gecko 35 lands on beta in a few weeks.
[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: Permafail when Gecko 36 merges to Aurora.
Can I have a patch for testing on this one too please? :)

Tracking, we don't want failing tests.
Jason, would you be able to help on this? Thanks
