You are correct, setting the target should be allowed to be done earlier - 
before a defect is made editorial ; target milestone is also used on 
defects non editorial so it makes sense to decouple the action of setting 
the target from the action of marking a bug editorial

RE: defect lifecycle diagram - 2 more cases not covered..

I always read the target to indicate prioritization, regardless of its 
Thus a current-draft-targetted editorial bug would ordinarily be serviced 
preferentially over editorial bugs lacking the current draft target 
qualification, all other things equal. 
I have no objection if we require target draft to be set when a bug 
transitions into editorial, however I think we must allow target draft to 
be set earlier. 
We used target draft (and P1/P2 within a draft) during July for example on 
non-editorial bugs to indicate what order we thought they needed to be 
resolved in, regardless of whether the next immediate step for any given 
bug was to author a proposal, discuss a proposal, or do editorial updates 
once a proposal had been agreed to. 

Best Regards, John
