That's correct. In launchpad, as in other non-debbugs trackers [;-)], only
authenticated users can change the status of a bug. In Launchpad's case,
that's usually done through a web browser, but it can be done by
(authenticated) email as well.

I think it would be reasonable to consider if DDs could automatically be
members of ~ubuntu-bugcontrol, e.g. via
membership in https://launchpad.net/~debiandevelopers.
