The issue here is that we still lack a means to select tests based on 
resources and other criteria. I hope this come in time so it will be 
possible to write tests like this properly.

In the mean-time then my only concern is that pushing a test with 
@ignore is just adding to the technical debt. Such tests are unlikely to 
be run or maintained. If you do push it with @test then a minor comment 
is to maybe push in the second line of @summary so that it is more 
distinguishable from the @ lines.
