This is not currently a requirement for any of the existing 3rd party 
drivers so it wouldn't be fair to enforce it on cephfs.

It *is* something we would like to require at some point, because just 
running the API tests don't really ensure that the driver isn't broken, 
but I'm trying to be sensitive to vendors' limited resources and to add 
CI requirements gradually. The fact that the current generic driver is 
unstable in the gate is a much more serious issue than the fact that 
some drivers don't pass scenario tests.
