I posed a similar question about the JDBC driver in CASSANDRA-2936.

Should these tests be considered functional tests of Cassandra, and
left be left where they are?  I know that was my intention WRT (the driver itself has a few tests of its own that do not
require a server).

I guess I don't have a strong opinion either way, though it seems
easier to say that Cassandra's tests will require you to have a driver
installed, versus having to configure the build/test of a driver to
point to a Cassandra tree.
