When we create a bug we get a 'BugTask' created and linked to the
Product table directly; tasks on a series are the same as tasks on a
product in that sense. So yes, they are there to track the work put into
 fixing the bug - but often a bug will be essentially a wishlist item
for a long time.

Yup; thats kindof tied into my concern: if the meaning changes or
clarifies, we don't want to be left stuck using a feature in an odd way.

I think the label is part of the general ambiguity about
series/releases/milestones in lp at the moment, I'd love to see this
with the edges shaved off.

It does today; as long as we get some sense of where Malone is going in
this space I doubt we'll be massively surprised.
