mdz told me this isn't done for practical reasons: the BTS isn't very
suitable for tracking which versions are affected, and a sid upload can
close such a bug while it's still in woody. While I think it'd still be
possible without too much hassle, if they don't want to do so, I'm not
going to interfere in that.

For those two bugs, I'm simply mailing the security team myself, maybe
also file a bug, don't know yet.
