Is your idea that this would be for tracking issues with the *bots* 
themselves?  That is, not just for tracking cases where some test method 
fails on a particular bot, but for tracking cases where, say, a bot's 
host has run out of disk space and cannot run the tests at all?

For the case where a test is failing because of some platform or 
environment issue, it seems more sensible to track the ticket as 
relating to that platform or environment, or track it in relation to the 
feature it affects.

Of course, tickets could move between these classifications as 
investigation reveals new information about the problem.
