In theory, you're right. In practice...meeeeh. editbugs privs are more
or less given out like candy; there's 2300+ people in the 'fedorabugs'
group already as things stand. As nirik observed, it's never really been
a problem. Messing up bug reports is not enough fun for trolls,
I haven't checked the numbers before replying (shame on me). If we already have so
many people with editprivs and there haven't been any major incidents, I agree
it's easier to have a very permissible policy like the one you proposed and only act
when something goes wrong (removing the person from the group if needed). And we can
always tighten the policy if we have bad experience with it.
