Let me reformulate, I like the idea:
a) move issues to jira first, set bugzilla readonly

b) do the cleanup in jira, which will send the emails to people with 
links to jira

c) people go to jira to confirm or close the issue.
The issue includes a backlink to the old bugzilla issue (according to 
Jeff Turner elsewhere in this thread, but is down currently, I cannot check) in 
case they want to check the info.

Is that what you mean?

The only downside is that people need to create an account jira first, 
before they can confirm or close their issues. But I agree that it's 
good to expose people to the new system.

I don't know if jira is as good as bugzilla for mass operations (i.e. 
"set all open issues which were entered before Sept 1st to LATER / P5), 
I'll check as soon as it is back.

The name's been changed to "bugzilla issues cleanup" since, see [1]
