I'd like to see this on the main site and i have some thoughts:

I't would be nice to later be able to move/correct the position 
of the bug until closed - e.g. keep the possibility to move a bug.

It would be nice to make links html hrefs e.g. sometimes one references
external sources e.g. wikipedia, links to objects in the history or

I'll be interested in getting feedback to my bugs e.g. bugs i either
opened or commented on by email.

I dont think notes need a title - The Note ID is a little prominent
would be sufficient to make it the same size as the technical infos of
the comments.
