mochitest sets profile object on self which imposes an undocumented workflow
Objects generally have methods that can be called without precondition or that take some effort to safeguard against their calling when preconditions are not met (i.e. sanity checks) or they attempt to fulfill the preconditions. The setting of `self.profile` on the Mochitest, http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/testing/mochitest/runtests.py#483 , and B2GMochitest, http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/testing/mochitest/runtestsb2g.py#101 , instances imply the one-shot workflow currently used in testing. If we want a one-shot....that's fine. But in this case it would be nice to document how the harnesses are supposed to work since why e.g. the profile goes on self and manifest is returned by buildProfile/build_profile and what else lives as an instance variables vs in options isn't particularly based on any sort of reason that I can see.
