As mentionned in IRC, uncategorized bugs should be displayed first.
That's what QA does using 'Cat1Order: N X Y Z...' with N the index of
Uncategorized (that's what I see from BTS spool, I don't understand how
to get this configuration inside the BTS).

"Browsing packages at packages.debian.org [packages]"

And since we didn't found yet the proper way to retrived current
or using rsync: bugs-mirror.debian.org::bts-spool-index

Split bugs about content or design/CSS ?

An option is to add tag for directories, ex./News or /security/  
r /CD/ or /Bugs/.

Some of these bugs may be related more to the way it is published (for
example how the filenames from packages or SVN map to content-negocation
So IMO I think a /doc/ tag would be useful.
