I think the main reason has always been CI job runtime - we have a
hard limit for job timeouts, and historically we've had better luck
using our tripleo "pingtest" minimal functional test vs running a
suite of tempest tests as it was just much faster than running tempest
smoke tests - that may no longer be the case though, I've not used
tempest myself for a while.
