Note that entries in bugzilla don't have to be _phrased_ as bugs; it's
perfectly fine if the title of your bug is:

 "Patch to add a frobate button to gtkcolorsel"

And the description is:

 "Here's a patch I created.... it's a useful addition because..."

I note that only because we've had a few patches submitted
that are like:

 "GtkColorsel is missing a frobate button"

 "GtkColorsel is missing a frobate button. This is a bug
  because...  And, by the way, here's a patch to fix this

No need to force the wording :-) Basically, acts as
a TODO list and issue tracker for the GTK team. It's not just about
bugs in the strictest sense.
