It is supposed that such tests "skip" in these situations... It's the
same for tests that depends on special things like pod coverage or test
coverage. Usually, when the requirements for test are not present the
test is skipped.

I think it's a forward'able bug if a test fail because of a missing
requirement that doesn't mean the code is wrong.
