Of course "stable" couldn't be listed as a trouble, but my proposal was
to introduce a term to qualify the stability state (or whatever you
prefer to name it) of a changeset. In other words, a changeset may be in
state that is either "<something meaning not unstable/divergent/bumped>"
or not. Having a name for this boolean state along with a name for the
not-troubled state would be useful in general I think.

I'm fine with this as well. Will send a V2 with the singular "trouble"
