It might be possible to add a calibration test in order to find out
what timings are needed.

Identifying which tests are timing sensitive would be a start. Is it
possible to write additional information to the Surefire log files? If
so, this would be a good place to document timing dependencies. Or
maybe just add something like "(time-sensitive)" to all the fail
