Since version tracking is implemented [0], all the "distribution tags"
mean "this bug should get fixed here (so don't archive the bug)"
instead of "this bug applies here".

When $oldstable gets a fixed package, or the maintainer no longer
intends to persue such a fix.

I suppose so (*wonders if there will be an $etch+1 tag*).

I'll note that many times these distribution tags may have been set
before the version tracking was implemented (or before the person
setting the tag knew how to use it).  So, if there's reason to believe
this, and reason to believe that the maintainer doesn't actually
intend to support woody, then the tag could be removed.
