I believe these removals are necessary to trigger the running of the tests.

By default, if no tags are specified the default is "@run main <name>". 
But, "@clean <name>" is short for "@run clean <name>", so there will be 
no action to actually run the test.

If we really need the clean tags, then a specific "@run main <name>" tag 
is needed.
