IIRC..Bugzilla does this nicely (might be the only thing it does
nicely). When a bug is marked incomplete by a triager the original
reporter gets a email notification (just as LP) but then when the
reporter responds and presses submit, he gets a question which is
something like "Did you give the developers what they needed?".

That would be one way to solve it..

Ps. This is also almost how it works on LP Answers as well.
