What about cases when xorg fails to start but doesn't strictly crash.
I'm thinking about stuff like "no screens with usable configuration" etc.

If xorg gets stuck in a loop with 100% cpu, should that be a "freeze" then
or is that reserved for infinite ioctl() blocking bugs only?

Will you publish a final tag list on the wiki later and with an explanation
of each?
