Assuming that the "often results in FD" holds true, and that this doesn't
encourage snap judgements, this seems like a very good idea to me.

(That said, I would suggest in particular that the ctte exercise extreme
caution if the bug log does not show evidence of a maintainer response
that demonstrates an irreconcilable situation.  The ctte should still be
a *last* resort.)
