That's one of the reasons some of us dislike the UI on b.m.o. For 
triagers and QA people who don't need to comment, but only to change 
some fields, it's a pain to scroll up and down all the time.

Another question of debate is the place where the keywords, status 
whiteboard and URL fields are. Probably they shouldn't be so high in the 
page, as most(?) of us probably don't use or need them. The assignee and 
target milestone seem more important. But this is really a question of 
taste, and as long as there is no consensus, we will probably keep the 
current UI which is by far not perfect, but much better than the one we 
currently have in 2.22.

One part of the UI which will be ported upstream for 3.0 is the 
attachment table (the patch is currently under review) as there is a 
good consensus about it.
