Sure, it would be nice if they had nice names etc., but it's a regression test, it caught a real issue, and it certainly costs on average less time to debug even these opaque test than debugging and fixing after a user finds it...
Or maybe I've just been working for too long with randomly generated tests that you simply have to accept and debug as not making any sense...
