In other words, what `tierX` consists of is a matter of agreement. I'd say `hotspot:tier4` is "all assorted Hotspot tests that are not application-specific suites"
The difference is that your previous work just consolidated the existing
subsystem tier 1-3 definitions, but here you are choosing to define "all
the rest" as tier 4. I don't think it is actually helpful/useful to
anyone - and it bears no resemblance whatsoever to what we call "tier
4", so that will just lead to unnecessary confusion IMO.
