Sure. Now I do not support the idea that 'being proper triaged' is a
prerequisite before developers will/may look at reports.
Apart from that, the repeated example of crossplatform doesn't seem the
most exited example of proper triage to me.
Details of the reason of the bug, clear summary (finding, recognizing),
component, duplicates (may ~indicate importance) regressions (user
expectations, statistics), bibisection come to my mind much earlier.

Sure, my point is that triage is useful for QA and devs. And indeed in a
situation that looks as if there's not really enough hands to confirm
all reports, let alone do proper triage where it would be good, let
alone to do useful clean ups and in depth investigations on certain
areas.., spending too many words on what/how the prefect route &
handling is, seems a bit superfluous ;)
So basically I don't see where we disagree :)
