No, it doesn't cause any problems for the BTS; it's just confusing and
inconsistent for people trying to get information out of the BTS.  If the
bug was in debiandoc-sgml-doc, *not* in debiandoc-sgml, then it's helpful to
have the bug assigned to debiandoc-sgml-doc.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
