releng is about making relative judgements of quality not absolute ones.  
The question is "is 2.2.0 better than 2.0.x?" not "is 2.2.0 bug-free?".

If you look at bugzilla you can find hundreds of "known issues" many of 
which are far more serious than the two mentioned in the release notes 
(one a feature which has no feasible "fix", one a platform-specific 
lack-of-feature).  Should we wait a few days for those to be fixed too, 
each time someone points one out?
