I want to keep the word "intentionally", though -- if something
only happened to work because of a happy coincidence of bugs, then
"breaking" that should not be a Critical bug.

I'm not sure about this.  The purpose of selecting
out bugs to be critical is to ensure the user who
keeps up to date with the stable series of releases
can be sure nothing in the new release is going to
break his scores.  He doesn't care whether something
worked just by a happy coincidence of bugs.  All he
will see is a new stable release that breaks his scores.

Shouldn't we avoid doing that?
