Well, we should carefully consider the disadvantages of that change. For 
example, one thing we will lose with a flag-based solution is the 
transitiveness of blocking a tracker bug. So we'd lose the KDE, X11, kernel 
etc. trackers or at least not have their dependencies show up in the blocker 
reports. Instead, they'd all have to be nominated as blockers explicitly 
even if they're already on e.g. the KDE tracker. Whether this is a good 
thing or a bad thing needs to be discussed, but this doesn't seem to have 
come up in the discussion so far.
