I'm being open-source-centric. I would expect any closed Bugzilla (such
as async's) to have a much smaller set of users, almost all of whom have
editbugs, and zero of whom abuse that privilege, or complain about the
privileges of others. So the admin burden is much less.
Anyway, the original feature ("force someone to CC themselves if they
want to comment") was suggested as a counter to a problem only found in
OS projects anyway.
