It's a reasonable step to bring the text up-to-date. What I feel is
lacking is information on which tests are known to be problematic and
why - whether or not it is truly fixable. The issue with .xfail is that
we lose a central location for such a reference. I guess the README is a
better place to explain the XFAIL tests, although it would be best to
put detailed explanations in the test themselves.
