It does, but...

There are lots of ways to work with an issue tracker. After trying it
your way (or some reasonable facsimile thereof) for a while, we got
frustrated by the sheer number of non-issues, duplicate issues, etc we
were closing. The issue tracker is more cumbersome to work with than
our email clients, so we decided to move filtering to the email lists,
and try to only have things in the tracker once we're fairly sure they
belong there.

No one ever said it's the One Right Way. But give us credit: we *did*
start out the other way, and got to this way through hard experience :-).
