I don't know why; randomization of tests is good, as long as the seed
is written when a test fails and a specific seed can be injected to
reproduce the case. It means that your tests aren't unintentionally
dependent on some arbitrary order or input data/size you may have
chosen. I've used this strategy very successfully in the past.
