This would be a local hack (custom template). We don't have dependencies 
on products, i.e. querying productA which is based on productB and 
productC won't automatically look into B and C for bugs. And I suppose 
in most cases, especially for power users, I would hate to see Bugzilla 
querying products I didn't ask it to look into.

You would miss all bugs reported in betas or RCs, which may still be 
present in 3.0 but were marked as blocking-firefox3-. This could be too 
restrictive, so here again, you couldn't easily automate the process.

I'm not a fan of this idea. Go with the custom template.
