This is the right way to do it. The reason you want to file
"usability" is to query based on that, right? So make a keyword for
it. Just as we have keywords for "keynav", "API", etc. in GTK+.

The problem with keywords is that they require maintainers to actively
add the appropriate keywords to new bugs as they come in to the
tracker, but not much to be done about that.

That's wrong, severity != category.

I think the larger problems are things like: many people are not
actively using bugzilla to track their package, there's no way to move
bugs to and so we keep just blackholing
Evolution, OAF, etc. bugs...
