I wouldn't have a problem with that resolution renamed to (or augmented
by) "UPDATE".

Agreed, though NEXTRELEASE can always mean that something has been done
in a final product which isn't the latest, just not in that old version
you use (which RAWHIDE clearly doesn't mean). Doesn't make much sense in
the Fedora Realm, where NEXTRELEASE would always be covered by
CURRENTRELEASE, but with RHEL you can have a bug against 2.1 which is
already solved in 3 which is not the current product version.

The resolution names seem as they're organically grown, possibly on
account of being just that ;-).
