That doesn't strike me as very elegant at all, more like a hack to make
the two field thing workable.

Actually, http://bugs.debian.org == http://www.debian.org/Bugs/

The bugs.debian.org/{package|number} should now be the same as entering
the bug number/package name into the search form. It used to be that the
search form used the new CGIs and the redirect used the static pages, but
they both use the same thing now.

This is a good idea.
