I was thinking of gauging the rest robustness. To check if
the level we are at, through CI. I would keep the timeouts and would
keep retries. 

Mainly the intent would be to find a pattern. Like if on some platform,
after test x, the first reset always timeouts would be a sign
to further robustify.
