We actually have the FutureFeature keyword documented in the bug
triaging guidelines:

Ideally, anyone working on bugs is aware of these and follows the
guidelines. Unfortunately we can not assume that is the case. Triaging
does not seem to happen as regurarely as when we had the weekly meetings
dedicated to this. The "Weekly Untriaged Bugs" email does require an
action from the developers working on the components, hopefully that
will be seen of higher importance with this email thread.
