The EFL port is gradually moving things from Skipped to TestExpectations.
This process is taking time because we are using this opportunity
to investigate each item and make an association to a bug for every line
moved from Skipped to TestExpectations.

I personally don't see a problem on moving our skip list to a new section
on TestExpectations tagged as "SKIP" for the sake of reducing legacy on the
testing infrastructure.

Another option would be just migrate Skipped to TestExpectations syntax and
let the ports move things to expectations file.
