i would strongly favour starting with such a "lockdown". mostly because
of seeing too many useless reports on osb, and to see that community can
deal with the amount of incoming reports.
as noted by others, there's little benefit if we're swamped with
reports, they pile up, become outdated etc. it also discourages
reporters from bothering again.
