That's correct. It's an attempt at using Bugzilla for all our bugs, and 
to manage them with some sense of "control" over what's there :)

You're right, it is similar to UNCONFIRMED/NEW. The reason for choosing 
a keyword was the inherit limitations of the status, eg. anyone with 
editbugs will default to NEW, you can't go back from UNCONFIRMED to NEW, 
and an ASSIGNED or REOPENED bug loses the state, etc.
