Well, you could always hack post_bug.cgi and, when CheckFormField is called
(you can search for it as all calls are next each other) and change it from:

CheckFormField(\%::FORM, 'bug_status',   [$::unconfirmedstate, 'NEW']);


CheckFormField(\%::FORM, 'bug_status',   [$::unconfirmedstate, 'NEW',

of, course, I don't assume any responsability on this :) and you should but
it back as soon as you have finished your migration...

Note that I didn't test this and I'm not an expert on perl either :)
