It is more complex than that, because we have dozens of people who are 
able to confirm and triage a bug (e.g., OpenOffice crashes on an Impress 
presentation; they can verify that it happens under multiple operating 
systems, detect whether this is a regression with respect to a previous 
stable version, produce a minimal presentation exhibiting the crash) but 
are not able to estimate where the code should be changed and what the 
impact of the fix is.

So, the difficulty flag is a welcome addition, but we should probably 
restrict access to it (if not by system privileges, at least by internal 
policy), much like it happens for the "Release blocker" field.
