Hi Maciej, 

I was acting under the assumption that this was something being disucussed for
html.next. Would be good if we could define a keyword that flags bugs for
html.next. I realise we have a sperate product for it, but if bugs get filed or
re-opened against the html spec then it would be helpful to be able to flag as
html.next rather having to refile.

note this issue has been previously raised:
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/134 and marked as postponed.
