I agree that bugzilla is not a good choice for this.

I cannot follow here, because third parties still can use the comps file that 
any frontend will spit out.

I would enjoy a useful UI to edit groups, because I have to edit it around 
once for each package I bring into Fedora, so a well designed UI can help a 
lot here, that too manually search trough a huge xml file to find a 
appropriate category. Also I do not see any reason why not both should be 
possible, i.e. use packagedb as a frontend to edit comps and still store it 
in some scm, where anyone interested can edit it manually.
