No, he meant foobar-wishlist to stand for the bug *number* of the bug, which would be against package wnpp.  Or at least, that's how I read it.

That's right.  Although we weren't talking about ITPs as much as
Requests For Packages, I think.  So I file a bug asking that XYZ be
packaged, someone else emails the bug saying `I tried to package this
but encountered ABC problem' and then finally someone says `I am
packaging this' and then closes the bug when he uploads (possibly in
the changelog of new package!)
