The QUnit tests really haven't evolved or expanded in recent years.

Alternatively, Gutenberg has a well developed test library based on Jest, and exports all of the config as a package we could use. In the interest of standardising, I suggest migrating our existing QUnit tests to work in Jest instead.

This will make it easier to contribute to these tests as well, plus it allows us to remove the last remaining usage of Puppeteer, as it turns out the QUnit tests run with that on CI. See

They don't really need a headless browser though, Jest + jsdom should suffice.
