A few ideas and suggestions:
* You should make your tool a proper Bugzilla Extension:
There is a template hook called "after_custom_fields" which would be
perfect for you to add your new UI to the bug edit screen. This would
mean your extension would work with more than one version of Bugzilla.
* You should use Template Toolkit and the template system to produce
any HTML you need, rather than using print() statements as now.
* Instead of loading the data via jquery, you could use code hooks to
prepare it when a page was being viewed, and then just access it
directly through template variables in the edit.html.tmpl template.
The general idea of your tool looks great, though :-)
