In my limited experience there are usually tests that can't run on CRAN
 because they take too long, rely on external software or configuration
that is absent, or just fail on CRAN only (which is naturally hard to
debug). This seems normal, and having the ability to turn off some tests is
useful. The fact that multiple workarounds have evolved to do this suggests
that the need is widespread.
