The only way I can read
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Package_maintainer_responsibilities#Deal_with_reported_bugs_in_a_timely_manner
is that bugzilla.redhat.com should be used and not ignored.  OTOH
that's the written policy, not the actual state, which is that some
package maintainers disagree - usually, for what is, from an
individual point of view, a good reason.

In general I'd say that packages where the maintainer that don't have
the time, interest or willingness to handle bugzilla.redhat.com
reports, should get comaintainers if at all possible.
