cf "Do working group members watch bug fixes and then open new bugs?" 

The substance of the bug was to insure responses to comments come "from the
working group" and not just "from the editor", even when allowing a
fast-tracking situation where the bugs get resolved and closed without any
explicit discussion.

Not everyone on the working group has the bandwidth or interest to monitor
these real time anyway.

> "You can regularly do a bugzilla search query for bugs that have moved to
state RESOLVED in some period of time ... monthly bug stats..."

Easy-to-find canned queries linked from the working group "How to participate"
instructions, with an explicit note about how to re-open or escalate something
if you disagree, etc.  sounds like it might do it.

I would think you might want to add some preconditions around reopening things
rather than escalating, though.
