Don't be so pessimistic; otherwise you have the burden to point out the
specific cases where "current tests are not useful".
And once again, the idea has never been to skip tests but to report these
as expected failures. As a developer, you should benefit from this as you
see directly whether and when a bug is fixed. Thus, this particular case
still requires the MD-specific check, which points to this PR upon failure.
