What are bugs? Are bugs really work items?

In my experience 'enhancements' or more commonly 'features' don't have a 
priority ( except for the sales group ) they have a scheduled release.

Changing to 'work items' is a mental jump onto the slippery slope to a 
task-management system. Bugzilla already has feature bloat, don't make 
it worse. If OTOH its just a semantic argument, then put in a proper 
variable and let everybody change it in the params.
