Obviously the feature owner.

That's easily scriptable through the bugzilla XMLRPC.

That sounds good.

For some features, it might not make sense to have bugs, because it's
bigger than bugs. Say for "make XX better", it might not make sense to
have a tracker bug because a portion of the work would be to see what's
needed to make XX better in the first place.
