The only problem I could see, is if the bugs filed are security
bugs/sensitive bugs, people adding themselves on the CC: would basically
get access to all those. Probably more a problem on the bugzilla-end

You'd have the same problem if you wanted to enable commits watch
without approval.

I think we'd still need to keep the approvals for the reasons above.
