Yes, I think this is a reasonable thing for somebody (who?) to do.

There are other cleanups possible as well. I could imagine that the directories 
listed for each target could be extracted into make variables, and then other 
makefile logic could be written that simply lists the directories, or runs 
jtreg over all the directories in a single run.

These would probably go a long way to simplifying Amy's and Balchandra's lives.
