The LibreOffice dictionary lists are somewhat limited. My favorite example is that the word 'sphygmomanometer' (doctor's blood pressure cuff) isn't listed there (and Firefox is also underlining the word in red as I type this comment!)

Plausible change, so:
Severity -> enhancement
Status -> NEW

>  A list of such words:
> 
> Genderfluid genderqueer bigender polyamorous bigender agender pansexual
> aromantic biromantic panromantic homoromantic heteroromantic

Several of these terms don't appear broadly in dictionaries yet, e.g.:
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/suggestions/biromantic

Other terms are more documented:
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/pansexual

I think that some wordlists do come from other ("upstream") sources, so adding words there might save some time/repetition?
