That's 264 tests that are excluded on that basis.

202 files (some tests, some refs) have broken links in them in the
build testsuite. Though some of these are broken <link rel=author>
links where they've been partly obfuscated to avoid spam bots picking
them up. "foo[at]bar.com" does not a URL make, and hence it breaks. I
don't know whether we should just unobfuscate these as well as adding
mailto: to them, or just add mailto: to them and leave them as invalid
within the mailto scheme.
