Your argument against a comprehensive bug management page in 
the wiki was the wish to separate bug reporting people from 
those, who do the triage. This implies to me, that ordinary
users should be discouraged from doing the triage. And the
triage policy should be out of their eyes. 

Note, triage by users not part of the bug team can only affect
the status. They will not be able to increase, or decrease
the importance. I see no much harm they can do, but a potential
for good input. Their "confirmation" flags and "affects-me" will
make it easier for developers to spot the most burning issues.

The average user who reports a bug must also triage a bug. The
less users do the triage thing, the more of this job will stay 
with the developers.
