I disagree, as far as I'm concerned they are definitely regression
tests. If we only wanted to check conformance then it would be OK for
tests to fail everywhere we are not compatible; it's because the tests
must be usable to find regressions that we cannot have failing ones in
the tree. And that's why we have the todo_wine macro to mark tests
that are expected to fail.
