The only reason I can think of is that in the case where we fail a lot
of DC tests, it will take time to restore the snapshot and promote the
base image to a DC for each failed test. Working from a base DC image
saves us from having to promote each time.
It's just as easy for me to add the DC tests to the existing windows
tests though. Would you rather I do that?
