This sounds like a usefull restriction. I've seen enough cases where the 
wrong bug was closed to see the benefit of this.
If the involved developers don't spot this a bug will be closed 
incorrectly and another remain open equally incorrectly.

Maybe the check could be defined a bit broader as "(not) belonging to the 
same source package".

If a bug is not closed because of this rule, a message should probably be 
sent to the uploader suggesting to check his changelog and correct and 
close manually where needed.

Cheers,
FJP
