The @bug tag is intended to list the bug numbers of bugs that are useful 
when you have a test failure and sometimes there can be really useful 
information in a bug that turns out to be a test bug. I'm not aware of 
any rule that says that the bug numbers shouldn't include bugs that were 
test only bugs but it's almost always bug numbers of bugs that caused 
the test to be extended to cover additional scenarios. For the tests 
being discussed here then I think we should just use our best judgment. 
Worse case it's easy to dig into the history with hg.
