mach mochitest-plain dom/media/test also runs tests in dom/media/tests

I've noticed this behaviour since content/media and dom/media were merged into dom/media.  The merged directory has both "test" (from content/media) and "tests" (originally in dom/media) subdirectories.  It's desirable to run these tests separately based on the code being modified.

(Dealing with the fact that "test" vs "tests" is a bit of a confusing mess is a separate issue.)

I'd expect a simple:
    ./mach mochitest-plain dom/media/test
    ./mach mochitest-plain dom/media/tests
to run the tests *only* in and below that directory, leaving
    ./mach mochitest-plain dom/media
as a way to run all of the tests.

This doesn't work as expected, and running
    ./mach mochitest-plain dom/media/test
seems to discover all of the tests in dom/media and run them all, leaving no easy way to run a subset/subdirectory of tests.
