Seems to me that that one is a layer too much. But yes, a mailing list
for that could be discussed, centos-devel probably would be cluttered by
those mails.

Yes, depending on which component the bug is filed against. But it is no
problem to "take over" a bug - once you have an access level which
allows you to, that is.

Yes. See (for example) #1603 and #1580.
