Again, confusion. Let me restate and elaborate:

I was only suggesting that [i.e. checking that the sender has an 
account] as an access control mechanism for emailing
the bug reporter [using the address 
bug123-submitter at bugzilla.mozilla.org], not for Bugzilla email in 
general. So I don't think spoofing is an issue - [if you wanted to send 
mail to the submitter of a bug and didn't have an account] you could 
just look up the bug and get the email address from there if necessary 
[rather than sending fake email from another account to the relay address].
