Good point.
Mandriva bugzilla currently includes documentation and translations as 
options in the "components" field.
It would be much better to have them as flags, independant of 
components, as each could apply to other components.
(We even have translations of documentation.)
This would facilitate searches for those who wish to identify (and 
correct) documentation or translation errors, and help ensure that such 
bugs are identified as such. (Instead of being identified by the actuel 
Thus adding documentation and translation flags, and removing them as 
options of components.
