I would propose to start using flags after migration to own Bugzilla
instance, as you cannot whiteboard everything and abusing this field will do
more harm. See http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/4.4/en/html/flags-overview.html.
For instance following flags could be introduced:
- documentation - indicating that a new feature should be documented
- moztrap - indication that test case in moztrap should be created
- relnotes - indication that a feature should be described on release notes
Flags are searchable, so everyone interested in participating, whether it be
creating moztrap test cases, writing documentation etc. could add a Bugzilla
search or create a whine (when enabled) for particular flag.
Flags have states, so a documentation request could be done simply by
setting documentation? and when done changed to documentation+. 
Of course granting or denying a documentation flag could be allowed by
documentation team for instance (or those in documentation bugzilla security
Just my few cents.
Best regards.
