Sometime ago (i think) I discussed how to do this on the developer list.

The jist:

finite state automata

(for each product???) you can add a new state
then specify which states it can change to.
specify a default.
dont allow deletetion if bugs in that state
dont allow deletetion if other states assign to it
dont allow deleteion if it is a default state.

[plan for security issues, like allowed to change to new state...]
