I think it would be useful to split "Needs Work" into more severe (the test is invalid)
and less severe cases (the test is valid, but could be better). In the latter case, we'd
want to unhook the test from the test results and reporting harness. From Gérard's wiki
list of issues, I see these major groups of Needs Work:

   Needs Work - Incorrect  /* The test is wrong and should not be passed or doesn't test what's claimed. *
   Needs Work - Metadata   /* The test metadata needs correction or improvement. */
   Needs Work - Usability  /* The test is confusing or hard to judge. */
   Needs Work - Precision  /* The test is imprecise and may give false positives. */
   Needs Work - Format     /* Syntax errors, format violations, etc. */
