Speaking of local testing, any change that some love for the scripting engine is planned in the future?
It's being used far more than it appears and it's became pretty invaluable to measure user journeys for example.
I know you're a very busy guy and believe if I had the knowledge to contribute to the project I would be already doing PR's along the lines of local test scripting with debugging or improve the documentation with some good examples of several use case scenarios.
As is, a lot of time is spent looking at empty invalid tests and go by trial and error.

Incidently, WPT is an epic undertaking which me and I'm sure every single person with performance on their radar will be eternally grateful to you for building such an essential and critical tool. So take my comments in stride, and keep up the amazing work you're doing.
