Let's define "no visibility". What that means is that the bug has not 
been elevated to the urgent attention of the developers who might try to 
fix it, of whom I am one. Perhaps you misunderstand my definition. BMO 
should be used as the mechanism to bring important bugs to the attention 
of relevant developers.

But bug 1069419 in BMO is:
- Unconfirmed
- normal (default) importance
- no "regression" keyword.
- no flags
- no votes
- tiny CC list

That is the BMO representation of a bug that is has not been deemed 
important. I am not saying that this bug is in fact unimportant, frankly 
I don't really know. What I am saying is that, as currently represented 
in the system, this is not a bug that is likely to get any attention. So 
"the discussion went off on a tangent" precisely because bugs that you 
claim are important are in fact not, as represented by the triage 
process. Either the bug is truly unimportant, or the triage process is 
broken. Giving you the benefit of the doubt, we asked whether the triage 
process is broken and started to discuss it.
