Comments added.

At a high level, even more tolerance for assignment criteria, increased
assignment (by MITRE and/or CNAs) is necessary to keep up with reality.
 A direct affect is an increased need for split/merge/reject cleanup.

Perhaps, vaguely reminiscent of CAN/CVE days, CVE entries get a flag
that can be set by MITRE or a CNA to distinguish "claimed
vulnerabilities, report looks plausible, public reference" from "vendor
acknowledged, or otherwise substantiated claim, public reference."
