It is easier to read and I think something along these lines would
make a lot of sense if this weren't a transient change (the idea is to
eventually drop the recursive backend in favor of ort, and then these
can all switch to just using test_expect_success).  Maybe it still
makes sense to make further changes here anyway, but if we do go this
route, there are 1-2 things we can/should change:

First, while a lot of my contributions aren't that important, and the
new test_expect_* function certainly falls in that category, one of
the driving goals behind a new merge algorithm was fixing up edge and
corner cases that were just too problematic in the recursive backend.
Thus, the patch where I get to flip the test expectation is one that I
care about more than most out of the (I'm guessing on this number)
100+ patches that will be part of this new merge algorithm.  Having
you take over ownership of that patch thus isn't right; we should
instead keep my original patch and apply your suggested changes on top
(or have a patch from you introducing a new function first, and then
have a patch from me using it to flip test expectations on top).

Second, I think that lines like
    test_expect_merge_success recursive=failure ...
read like a contradiction and are also confusing.  I think it'd be
better if it read something like
    test_expect_merge recursive=failure ort=success ...
or something along those lines.
