I presume that you are referring to the WHATWG spec comments form? 
I.e., the one that appears at the bottom of

   http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/

But not here:

   http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html

At the present time, that form is directly wired into creating bug 
reports.  Would it be possible for it to place this information on some 
sort of queue, and that bug reports would only be opened on the ones 
that some group of people selected?

I seem to remember a period of time when the WHATWG twitter account was 
overrun by spam as it was wide open, and something was set up to control 
who could post and who could not.  Perhaps that same list of people 
could approve comments to be opened as bug reports?
