The release team uses the combination of targeting and milestones to determine  what bugs they need to track. Given the way launchpad works, I think this is the best we can do (we went through the possibilities at a relatively recent UDS). The key is that targets are restricted to developers so we can manage the list without excessive noise.

This is by design (see above). It would be useful however if a developer could flip a bug from accepted or rejected but to undecided so it could be subject to nomination again. Currently the only possible change is from rejected all the way to accepted.

Given the impacts of rejecting a milestone, developers need to consider it carefully before doing so.
