You can NMU for any bug in principle, not just for RC bugs. That's a
common misconception, but the Developers Reference lists nothing about
only RC bugs being candidates for NMU. Of course, on a typical BSP,
those RC bugs are the focus, but especially bugs that will become RC in
the future are worthwhile NMU candidates too.
