A Derby product regression that  is a bug that hopefully will be fixed.
Example DERBY-1459

Any change intentional or otherwise that might affect existing 
applications, including bug fixes that have a resonable  potential to 
impact applications negatively.
A user could query before upgrading to find out what issues might affect 
their applications, be it regression or  intentional.
All regressions  have Existing Application Impact but not all issues 
with Existing Application Impact are  Regressions.
Example DERBY-721

Pehaps a clearer  approach  would have been  for Existing Application 
Impact to be "Intentional Behavior Change"   so there is not the overlap.
