Personally, I agree with you - flaky tests should be avoided. And thus I appreciate your wok on CD-Linter.

On the other side, CI runners sometimes experience unexpected slowness while timers still work. These might fail some of the tests that need a certain timing. A `retry: 1` reduces the number of times that deserve manual attention, and that worked out for us in the past.
