Correct. This isn't a bug in Wine. It's a suggestion for making WineTricks more robust. The reason I sent this email re WineTricks is because at:
Reporting bugs *in* Winetricks
Winetricks has a bug tracking system at http://code.google.com/p/winezeug/issues/list though sending email to wine-devel at winehq.org is usually good enough.

Actually, from Troy's description, there isn't any valid bug at all.
Troy claims that the msxml6 installer broke when using native msi.dll
but succeeded with Wine's msi implementation. Native msi tends to be
pretty useless and break when used on Wine, and there's no problem in
Wine, so a bug would be useless here.
