I slightly modified your snippet to preserve the assertion that can be useful to not to reintroduce this bug in the future.

Maybe I am missing something but right now there is no race on how we initialize the `BugType`. The result of the initialization can depend on, however, the set of checks that are registered. I agree that this is unfortunate but introducing a new `BugType` does not solve this problem or at least it is not apparent for me how would it solve this. One option would be to simply not report these issues unless the corresponding check is registered. The other option would be to make this depend on a new check name that needs to be enabled.
