The proposal is accepted, and we have started working on stabilizing the tests. It will require multiple work items to get it fully done, so you can expect small incremental improvements over a period of time.
The tests should already be more stable on v21.0.0.0.

This require componentization of the base application as well as custom solutions over the coming years.
