Ours is:

That's one of the more-or-less standard collection of files in the
main directory of any Open Source product, along with INSTALL, CHANGES, ...

"Bugs" is also a standard section in a Unix man page, or at least was in
1970s Unix and has re-appeared in current products, though AT&T dropped
it in the 80s for marketing reasons.

I still remember the entire "Bugs" section from the 'find' utility in
Version 7 Unix: "The syntax is painful."
