One small but irritating factor of the tests is that there seem to be a
gazillion class categories of them. They're not terribly regularly
named. They're all over the category list in the browser.
I posit that simply putting them all into a single category would hide
them well enough to make things a tad less confusing. Normally I'd
prefer a sensible breakdown into multiple categories of course, but
they're just peripheral classes and mostly used by the testrunner so
what the hell.
