This is a good idea, but I assume you are talking about 1.35 :) Then you
can go ahead.
Also, I believe the typeof testing needs to be generally reviewed. Right
now all the "native" tests repeat emulation tests just with different flag.
I don't think this has a lot of sense, since the emulation tests were
designed to test registration.
