Moztrap is done for people who are not able or who have no time to do
more QA, and also is supposed to be for non English speakers in the
future. Although may be it's possible to separate the tests, I'm not
sure if it's the best to tied it to BZ for beginners or occasional
testers in several languages.

It's a good idea, but in my opinion separated from MozTrap which should
stay a simple tool to participate in testing over regressions.
