I think that's ok for now, even if there is no easy way to directly run them. They are still valuable since next time we want to enhance or fix sorting the tests will be easy to find.

For many tests we often require jtreg or testng, so it's kind of another dependency which is actively maintained and developed by the overall JDK team. Granted it's one that currently requires more work to execute. It might be interesting to investigate if jtreg could be enhanced to build and run JMH tests, or even a separate harness would be useful, most probably leveraging maven.
