I'd like to use bugzilla milestones a) for "we want this bug fixed in that
version, no matter if we get around to do it or not", so we should be
generous with what is "important", because it's the *only* list of bugs
we have in e.g. 2.6 or 2.8 (the reported-against version is random mostly
So it seems I mostly agree with your a), and I have no objections against
using priorities for b).
Generally, I rather like to have more than less bugs on a milestone,
because there is nothing more frustrating than a huge list of
bugs with milestone "---". It looks as if we simply don't care at all.
