I agree it's not very clear upfront.

That may be questioned, but this is another topic of discussion. ACK.

I'm not sure.

OSLC-CM V1 only mandates some very basic fields of description of bugs,
but it doesn't prevent to use extended (non-standard) attributes, making
it a very basic common standard, still extensible for each tool's
specific attributes.

Anyway, thanks for your comments, and we'll eventually try and hack some
code to demonstrate if/how debbugs may benefit from OSLC-CM ;)
