Given the time it takes triage them, compared to how long it takes to
file them, I'm not sure it's a win for us.

It's a file'n'dump bug. There's no one that actually looked at the bugs
to try and analyse them, nobody to offer a reminder in the bugs (they
were filed and left untouched).

I'm not sure what this has to do with anything. The signal to noise
ratio in the RH bugzilla is far too low to be anything useful, and
piling another bug on top of other bugs, with no reminder apart from
this mail is rude.
I'm confused. You want reminders filed in the bugs, but then you say
the S-to-N ratio is to low to be useful.
I could add automatic reminders in bugzilla, but I don't think that
solves your key concern.
The packages I posted last night were since F12 only. Personally, I'd
like to see all FTBFS since even F14 fixed (they all have bugs filed).
