I can't comment on when - thats a Neutron dev decision, but I heartily
endorse getting all code paths tested asap :).

I think the requirement of 'use third party tests' is confusing goal
with implementation: the goal should be that 'all vendor plugins be CI
tested at verification level at minimum'. This leaves room for gate
based testing of such plugins too, if the vendor steps up and meets
the requirements to have their plugin be gate checked - which is
superior to merely doing verification checks.
