For many of these cases where the test is valid, but it's unreasonable 
to use it as an exit requirement, please don't delete the test from the 
repository. Instead maintain a list of tests that you don't expect to 
use for the Process and the reason that they aren't being used.

Obviously if the tests are broken or buggy they should be fixed.
