Erm, the bug would be filed against a particular version.  EG the bug
has to be filed against Fedora 14 in order to be able to use flags to
mark it as a blocker for Fedora 14.  Bugs filed against rawhide wouldn't
necessarily be able to set flags (although that's an interesting
discussion to have)

The release blocker symbol name changes every release, whereas the flag
could have a static name, which would make it easier to document and
remember, in my opinion.
