Sadly, I have to concur. Can't believe I missed that in testing, but I 
was focused on blocking tests that had already existed, not checking how 
new ones we're handled. =/

The problem is the check runs after get_hts(), which means a test record 
is already made internally before we've checked for acceptability. This 
is something we can revisit and add in in the next rev, since it 
actually brings up a few different possible approaches.

I'll leave RC3 up for testing of everything besides that, however.
