I left a few comments on rietveld.
The patch should also include documentation.

I also agree that seeing @testBaseClass (the current name in the patch) gives very little indication of what's going on, but perhaps that could be fixed with a better name.
The two importants things are that the class is ignored/skipped, and that this doesn't propagate to the subclasses (as one might expect).
Would something like @ignoredBaseClass/@skippedBaseClass be better?  Another options could be a more explicit @dontRunBaseClassTests, even though I don't particularly like the name.
