I only made a decision to start using bugzilla quite recently. I
suspect we'll have some other issues entered there before too long.

The editor has said he will give full consideration and an
explicit response to any issues raised there, and from my side, I
will track the progress of all issues raised there.

I think the bugzilla may be doing shared use as a tracking system
not just for specs but also for open-source code maintained at
W3C, and those fields may be useful for that. So I think for now
at least we just need to find a way to live with them.
