As I see it, we (bug triagers) work for developers. If developers are 
not happy, than it's our fault, we can't blame them: they're our 
customers!

We are free to discuss/blame their practices and suggest improvements. 
However such suggestions must reach the correct people (in this case, 
if I have understood correctly, the Ubuntu security team). We can't 
decide for them.

But in my opinion, the real problem here is that either Launchpad or 
the Ubuntu Wiki or the security team fail to communicate that security 
bugs are special and shouldn't be touched unless you know the correct 
workflow.
