We can add new (micro)formats as needed.

However, we are currently relying only on pure HTML markup, which is a
big plus. Introducing any classes or such should be well thought out and
useful, since it adds to the testcase markup and makes it a bit less
legible. This is not a huge problem, but we don't want to make
reading/writing the testcases any more complex than it is now if the
benefit is only minor. I can agree some classes might be worth the while

We should probably coordinate this effort through the QA team so
everybody can be planning and benefit of it. I've just subscribed the
-quality mailing list [1], so we can take it there or #ubuntu-quality on
