I think these are misclicks. The hit target for this checkbox is pretty 
huge (because it (properly!) includes the label for it). I've seen 
myself tick it on occasion and then unticked it again (for obvious 
reasons), especially when manipulating the resolution or needinfo 
checkbox (which is corroborated by it happening when the bug was 
resolved in both of those cases). I think we should be proactive in 
reverting this if it getting ticked was clearly an accident, so I will 
go and mark these as non-editbugs-specific again.

Glob: can we move this checkbox next to the "make this bug security 
sensitive" checkboxes on the right-hand side? That's a better topical 
match, too, I would say.
