I previously objected to removing UNCONFIRMED, since NEW practically meant "someone who knows what an actionable bug looks like has seen this", and I've been using this distinction when choosing whether to open a bug from my RSS feed. This distinction has eroded since then, so I also think that we don't need UNCONFIRMED any more.
