I'm not saying that.  However, filing non-RC bug at the Debian BTS is not 
very productive in this case.

The bug exists upstream, so any Debian bug would simply be tagged upstream, 
and forwarded to the URL the OP mentioned.  The Debian bug would serve only 
as a placeholder/notification.

With RC bugs, this is useful since it prevents automatic migration from 
unstable to testing and is tracked closely for the release of testing as 
stable.  In addition tools like rc-alert and apt-listbugs only show RC level 
bugs (by default).

With non-RC bugs, is it not so useful.  If the reporter doesn't do the 
tagging and forwarding, it "wastes" the Debian Qt/KDE Maintainers time.  If 
the report does do the tagging and forwarding, well, at least then it 
doesn't do any damage.
