Let's go with "variant" and just spell it out.

I did consider Tim's idea of having them all say 'default', but since
the bulk of tests aren't going to have variants, I don't want to spam
the report with words I have to skip over.

And empty-check (instead of NULL) is fine by me.

The reason I'd like a dot is just for lay-person grep-ability and
to avoid everyone needing to remember to add separator prefixes --
there should just be a common one. e.g. searching for "tls13" in the
tree wouldn't find the test (since it's actually named "tls" and "13"
is separate places). (I mean, sure, searching for "tls" is also insane,
but I think I made my point.)
