Yeh, I saw a related review like that the other day. I think a bunch of 
the checks currently do dictionary compares, which is terrible for 
things that have timestamps.

I think we need to route out any tests which do that and unroll them to 
attribute compares for specific attributes that we know are stable.

This is a broader issue, and I'm actually trying to figure out if there 
is a good way to enforce this in the code programatically, as we've had 
to clean a few of these up before. And it's not entirely straight 
forward in review that these things would cause an issue.
