Perhaps what's missing then is a flag a maintainer can toss into a bug
that will exclude it from automated culling.  That way you won't have to
"move" it again at any time, you just note to the triage team that you
are aware and working the bug by dropping something in the bug.  Maybe a
flag, maybe a status whiteboard item, but something.
