in a late follow up: is it somehow possible to find features which are
optional within the catalogue? E.g. there are quite some testcases using
the schema import feature, which is optional. I would like to filter
those out as we don't support schema imports.

There seems to be something like a start for that, the empty test groups
at the bottom of the catalogue file. However, tests within other parts
of the suite (e.g. Sequence Cast As tests) use schema imports.
