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.
