I don't follow.

Surely any test that consistently fails is going to get ignored.
Where the problem lies is when those failing tests are mixed in with
tests that should pass.  Firtly, the test process is made needlessly
slower, secondly, they add even more noise to the results making it
even harder to find identify real failures.

I've not suggested deleting wip tests.  Just doing something with
tests that do not even appear in TESTLIST.
