You are missing the point. The win9x support makes the tests less
strict, by allowing additional behaviors, and that only when running on
Windows. Running them on Wine is pointless since these code paths are
never executed.

As part of the winetest infrastructure, they are not welcome, and never
have been. Nobody runs winetest on Win 3.1, and it would be a major
effort to make it work there. It's not worth the trouble.
