Transient problems can probably be ignored. Example, the first time I used BFO, it (I think anaconda) hung up for 2-3 hours because a mirror it had decided to use wasn't available, and there was no fall back. That's since been fixed, I think, but that's been years.

Optional test cases are fine for anything. That just means it can be 
tested not necessary it will be tested.

Adding this to the criteria however is not.
