The only other likely sources of false positives I can think of would also
be bugs, just bugs of a different sort - i.e., if you're build-depending on
a -dev package which you don't use and which is not a metapackage, but you
are using its dependencies.  So I think it's fine to file bugs for the
others, unless someone else raises objections here.
