My issue with keeping the RFEs in the tracker as they are is that it artificially inflates the open issue count. Python does not have over 1,700 open bugs.
That's a problem with our status reporting, not with the fact that there are RFE's in the issue tracker ;)
Adding a 'bug' keyword to go along with the existing 'rfe' keyword might have some merit, allowing separate stats to be reported for 'rfe', 'bug' and 'uncategorised' (neither the 'bug' nor the 'rfe' keywords have been set).
It may also be interesting to separate out the documentation bugs (based on the existing category field), as while those are traps for the unwary and need to be fixed, they're easy to deal with once you realise that the documentation is wrong.
