Yes, we can say if it's significant by changing its severity, or stating in the
logs that it'ss an useless bug, or remembering that it was working only in 2.95
and never worked in 3.x releases (so probably people don't care that much).
They are all very sensitive things to do, but it's RM's job to decide if it
must be fixed for the next release or not, unless he gives us some explicit
written policy about how to behave in certain special cases.
