That would certainly be good.

I'm assuming you mean run any test you're creating on a selection of
triples to make sure it's OK here, rather than rebuilding umpteen
times with just one target enabled.

It's a little ad-hoc, and edging towards onerous, but would improve matters.

I wonder if some option to llvm-lit that runs tests multiple times
over different targets could be useful? It could give a better sense
of safety over existing tests as well as new ones during development.
