As I said, all of the six bugs I am talking about have patches in the
BTS. For the packages maintained by the d-i group, I can see about
getting commit access on alioth and spend some time figuring out CVS.
For the others, RC status helps justify an NMU if the maintianer won't
fix the bug.
Some DDs (like myself) do give priority to RC bugs in our packages.
