Thanks for querying this, and for pinging me as I'd forgotten to get 
back to it.

That README does not say "only" or "by default"; it says "Upon finishing 
a test, the program reports the results in [this] format [...]".

Many tests print non-prefixed informative lines before the 
PASS/FAIL/XPASS/XFAIL/SKIP line when they XFAIL, and a few tests do when 
they pass.

This test is in line with existing tests: it prints these diagnostics 
only when it XFAILs.

This sounds like a reasonable wish for general improvement of the test
