Generally, the problem with RC bugs against nvidia-graphics-drivers are
just lack of team manpower so far as I can tell (as a user but not someone
involved in the team).  Each time I look at them, most of them should be
downgraded (#523879) or just closed (#534873, #561239, #549869, #548840),
or while a bug are probably no longer relevant enough to really be RC
(#558369), or ones that I've never been able to reproduce despite building
the package all the time (#416594).

The problem is mostly people not having enough time for bug triage and
cleanup.  Very little of that high RC bug count represents any serious
problem with the current packages in unstable other than reflecting that
lack of time.
