Ideally if importing test updates results in failures those end up
being tracked as new bugs. I realize that's not how it works today,
but that's how it should work I think.

In this case it's expected that a "historical" test is added that
tests the feature isn't supported, so there's still coverage.

Modifying tests doesn't happen often, but it definitely does happen
and it would be nice if infrastructure accounted for it. (I've often
added additional assertions or additional tests to an existing
resource.)
