Looking at that thread (which I didn't see at the time because I
no longer have time to follow this list much) I think I'd agree
that the CVE system itself is the wrong scheme, not only for its
own reasons but also because it doesn't reach the right targets.

All of these problems also apply to any new scheme someone sets
up; what I'm suggesting is that the existing CVE infrastructure is
not necessarily that much of an advantage.

One random thought, might it be worth adding structured data to CVE
that basically says when the issue was made public/reported to the
upstream and when upstream 1) acknowledged it (if ever) and then they
patched it (if ever) and when they shipped a fixed version (if ever).
Obviously then you could simply parse for the time between date
reported and date acknowledged/patched/fixed and see how
healthy/responsive the upstream is.
