I think there may be some confusion here caused by the fact that RHEL
and Fedora seem to use rather different conventions. The info in that
page is mostly to do with the RHEL process, not the Fedora one.

For RHEL, 'NEXTRELEASE' means 'it'll be fixed in the next version of
RHEL, but not this one'. For Fedora, 'RAWHIDE' seems to be used for
this. I'm not sure there's a benefit in having both of these.

As you can see from that page, 'CURRENTRELEASE' has a specific meaning
for RHEL which doesn't translate to what some people seem to believe it
should be used for, for Fedora. For RHEL it doesn't mean 'it existed in
a stable release and will be fixed with an update to the release against
which it was reported' - that's what ERRATA means.

Possibly the clearest thing to do would just be to use the same flow
RHEL uses, even if the names would be a bit odd for Fedora (since we
don't really have 'Errata' for Fedora releases). Otherwise, the Fedora
flow should at least be clearly defined somewhere, and explained on that
page in Bugzilla.
