Perl's TAP* (http://testanything.org/) uses SKIP results for tests
that should not be run because some prerequisite is not available, and
TODO tests for those that are expected to fail (due to not being
implemented, known breakage, etc).  They can be reported separately if
the harness wishes.

It sounds like this is what is being proposed.  Perhaps some prior art
could be used.

* I reference TAP because it is what I am familiar with, not because
it is better or worse than alternatives.
