I have come to an equivalent organisation when thinking about
reorganizing MDN JavaScript documentation.

We already have massive changes changes and the algorithm and algorithm set level that will impact test232, so I'm not sure that the higher level reorg that I'm thinking about would have that much more impact on it.
I'm not that worried about that aspect. IIRC, there will still be an
independent ES5 test suite, so it can follow ES5 chapter numbering,
while test262 for ES6 can follow the ES6 spec organisation.
