I don't think this would do any good. Users tend to mark bugs as
enhancement on a whim, from what I've seen. I'd say we should enable
voting for all bugs, and users should be informed that all enhancements
are considered separately from problems (your "real" bugs), and it
should be possible to show the highest voted problems as such.
I'm also strongly in favour of a limited number of votes per user. Along
the lines of 2 votes/week for non-developers, and 4 votes/week for
developers. Unused votes should NOT get carried over between weeks, to
prevent vote hoarding.
