It might well be dangerous to have e.g. f7() working on data known bad from before, some checks will have to be repeated in such a case (and f7() becomes more complex and fragile). And using this to be able to say that tests covered x% of f7() is nonsense, what is interesting isn't coverage in cases that don't do anything (because it failed before).
