Yes, let's reserve "trusted" for security contexts.
One might view agressively bad power management as
a security threat, of course: when the machine
becomes unavailable because its battery dies, that
can be viewed as a security attack, since keeping the machine available is the primary security goal.

Distinguish bugs from broken-by-design, too.
