I'm not enthusiast with this patch because I use various in this list
from time to time for testing or cross build/disas binaries. Not having
these containers used mainstream probably show the failure of the
project to add good testing coverage on these targets. Most of them are
for hobbyist with little time. Removing them will make it even harder
to add tests. Can't we keep them disabled? Or put them in manual mode?

Why is the CI rebuilding them, shouldn't them be cached or pulled from
the registry?
Maybe this show having all them in the same containers.yml file is not
good enough? Any suggestion for splitting it, so lowly used containers
don't get rebuild every time another often used one change the YAML
