Add to this
- feature completeness
- familiar UI
- integration with upstream issue trackers (which are often bugzilla too)

For all its cranks bugzilla is familiar to a lot of bug reporters that
use all the features added over time.

Any replacement must be at least as feature-full as bugzilla (not
simpler because it forgets to do some stuff) and offer a bugzilla-like
mode for existing reporters that do not have the time to learn yet
another reporting UI.
