    I agree that the term "maintainer-mode" is now confusing, and that it
    would be good to either remove the option altogether, or rename
    --disable-maintainer-mode to --enable-loose-dependency-checking or
    somesuch. But such a change doesn't seem suitable for 24.1.

The existing option name is not merely misleading, it is backwards.
I think that qualifies as a bug.
