Do you use the git checkout of debbugs? Note that I concentrate these
days on debbugs.el and debbugs-gnu.el. It might be that debbugs-org.el
is a little bit outdated in the repo. Will fix it before releasing 0.9.

Emacs has no special meaning on them. Check the debbugs doc:


"invalid" is declared in debbugs-*.el only. It sets the tags notabug and
wontfix, and closes the bug. See the User Guide.

We don't use critical and grave, 'tho.

No rule exist yet.
