Well, I dont take breaking our quality promise or blatantly violating policy 
lightly, quite the opposite :-) But, the impact of those bugs besides that 
really basically aint _existing_ while RC bugs for real block testing 
migration and thus block getting testing into an even more awesome state than 
it already is :-) That's why I think important is right here. 

(And in the beginning of my piuparts work I filed some of these bugs as 
serious and the feedback I got made me think about this quite a bit. Also 
it's usually "nicer" to file important bugs and get them fixed eventually 
then having to argue with angry maintainers about severities while those easy 
bugs are not dealt with because of emotions...

Should the consensus become to treat these issues are RC I'm happy to do so. 
Policy is _our_ friend. :-D)
