No. The "foo-ignore" tags mean "this issue /is/ RC, but we're ignoring it
for the release of foo". Any bug tagged "etch-ignore" is by definition RC
the moment etch is released.
The exact definition of what qualifies for a severity of serious or above
(i.e. RC) are the purview of the Release team, as noted at
http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Developer#severities. A "severe violation of
Debian policy" is one which violates the current release policy, as laid out
by the Release team.
