@caitlin Good find, but this directory name was presumably only given to match the naming scheme of [1] and [2].
Somebody should probably do the work and rename them all.

@leo: The Chrome Platform Status page [3] also mentions "ES8".

[1] https://chromium.googlesource.com/v8/v8/+/master/test/mjsunit/es6/
[2] https://chromium.googlesource.com/v8/v8/+/master/test/mjsunit/es7
[3] https://www.chromestatus.com/features/5644533144485888
