I agree except for Cases/Related-PRs.  If we want to retain the field,
we should clearly define its format and semantics since GNATS should
provide some means (not in 4.0) for problem cross-references.  Unless
someone is going to do it now, I'd suggest to remove the field for 4.0
and (re)introduce it later, preferably together with the
cross-referencing facility.
