In an ideal world, one set of results would be the set of results posted 
publicly somewhere for the latest promoted build.  But we don't seem to 
be able to make that happen, so I agree with Kelly that for now we need 
a more pragmatic approach of defining the set of tests we expect to work 
on every platform on every build.  Hopefully, over time, the relevant 
engineers will aspire to have their tests included in this set of tests.
