I have written about this a little bit before

No, they shouldn't and they shouldn't need to. We cannot force 
our reporters to crete accounts in the upstream bugzillas. We 
should deliver comments from the upstream bugzilla to our one 
(via XML-RPC I guess).

This is difficult -- yes, probably we could open the query from 
the upstream bugzilla in other tab. However, I have to admit that 
after brief query in the upstream database (e.g., in mozilla with 
the query tool in the new bug page) I just dump the bug there and 
let upstream triagers show that they know much better what's in 
their bugzilla.

Of course.
