comment Should automated tests be efficient?
Good list. I would add to that "Cheat". For example, sometimes end-to-end tests will contain all of the setup, when the actual thing you want to test is just the end bit. If your app has an API, you could use the API to load up / set up your prerequisite records, then your GUI test picks it up and performs only the GUI actions and validation needed for that test.

comment What are good guidelines to determine when to automate a test?
I would add deterministic to your list, as differentiated from "stable enough". I tend to think of "stable" as a feature of the component being tested (rate of churn/change), while "deterministic" to be will it always pass when things are good and fail when there is a problem, without false positives.
