Comment (by SergeyBiryukov):

 Some history on the `ms-required` and `ms-excluded` groups:
 * [40520] / #40531
 * [40564] / #40531
 * [43005] / #43863

 It looks like handling of these groups was added to
 `WP_UnitTestCase_Base::checkRequirements()` to avoid fatal errors in case
 they are not properly excluded in plugin/theme PHPUnit configuration
 files, or in case plugin/theme test suites don't have a multisite-specific
 configuration file.

 In practice, as the `::checkRequirements()` method has silently stopped
 being called with the update to PHPUnit 7 in [44701] / #43218, it seems
 safe to deprecate it.
