 But there ARE some different behaviours between Harmony and RI.
How could our test case show or these differences if all are passed both on
RI and Harmony?
I think our test cases should show these differences instead of hiding them.

Yes. So I think all test cases could pass on Harmony, but on RI :-)
Failures on RI mean RI has different understanding or behaviours compared to
Harmony criteria, or in other words, they're wrong behaviour according to
Harmony criteria.

That is a bit similar to 'exclude list' we introduced: we don't want
to have failures when they are expected and predictable.
