Personally I don't care what you do with them. :)
I like to discourage the use of packages as glorified tags, so perhaps
get rid of the "gnus" package altogether, and instead use a usertag or
just add "gnus" to the subject.

But it sounds like maybe the history here has been forgotten:

Gnus always had its own dedicated bug list, and some time ago [1]
we set things up so that would redirect to a "gnus" package at
debbugs.gnu.org. "emacs,gnus" was not appropriate, since eg these
reports might be about gnus with XEmacs or other issues irrelevant to
gnus-as-shipped with Emacs. See gnus-bug-package in gnus.el.

Anyway, that was the reasoning at the time.
