Indeed and we use that as labels by assigning bugs to emacs,<label>.
You mentioned "usertags" as another (better?) way to do the same, but
I don't know what that is.  Any URL?

I think the message should be changed to say that bugs should be
assigned to the `emacs' package instead.  I.e. we don't want to imply
that bugs shouldn't be reported, but just that they should be reported
elsewhere (to the "parent" package).
