Agreed. (That's probably a design flaw in the form, though.)

You use teams of people to classify bugs by topic? That's weird.

... The much easier solution is to limit the list of tags to only the 
most common 50 or so, and present them as a normal tag cloud (or 
alternatively sort them by popularity). That way people can still add 
useless tags to individual bugs if they like, and it (usually) won't 
affect the list on the Bugs page.
