No, not any more. Thanks!

The <jdk-version>-na labels are a good way to indicate a version
specific bug. Also setting the Fix Version to the specific JDK version
this is intended to be fixed first. Finally, explaining in the bug
description that it's a 11-only bug is helpful too. 'Affects Version/s'
isn't usually a complete list and I take it with a grain of salt. In
this case, I understood it as: "Reproducible on JDK 11. JDK 17 hasn't
been looked at in terms of applicability"
