+1 (with comment, see below)

It makes a lot more sense (and it's free from enterprisey meaning wrt ASSIGNED 
and such)

I'd leave the default resolution status for newly created bug as UNCONFIRMED 
also for editbugs-accounts. It's not that it cannot be changed to CONFIRMED in 
'new bug' extended form.

are people who seem to have the same opinion:
