An important bug has, per definition, to be fixed for release.
If the package is not considered important, well, why not leave
it out of stable because of important bugs? And if a maintainer
sees himself confronted with too many bugs, probably he should
ask for help or orphan some packages. IMO It's better to have
some packages of high quality than many buggy ones.
