this is not a matter of terminology. what i call lifecycle is the
succession of statuses (such as new, approved, fixed, validated, etc.) and
transition between them.

having multiple lifecycle. for example, for one type of record, you have:
new -> open -> fixed

and for another type of record you have:
new -> assigned -> open -> fixed -> approved
                \-> rejected -> closed

or whatever (and usually far more complex) other statuses and transitions.
i believe this can't be achieved in bugzilla without multiple instances
running (one same or different server(s)), each having it's own lifecycle
(and type of record).
