If a test is in JUnit format, please keep it that way. I (at least) run these tests from NetBeans which knows about JUnit. Extracting logic from MHT and changing the test framework directly dilutes my interactive testing workflow.
If my IDE had a jtreg plugin, I wouldn't need to worry about which jtreg tests use which style, but the world isn't perfect, yet.
P.S. Same comment to the people that are eager to change JUnit to TestNG apparently just because it's the new thing. TestNG was a step backwards in my workflow because the CLI *stinks* compared to JUnit, making it nigh-impossible to manually perform one-off runs. I assume that will be fixed but for now I patch my workspace back to JUnit in order to work in my IDE.
