I've wondered about that choice in the past, but tended to simply leave it 
at the default (new), figuring (while having my doubts about viability) if 
they were both available and new was the default, unconfirmed must be an 
intentional downgrade available for users who weren't sure yet, and were 
going to follow up later after further tests.

Is it possible to leave that option for users, but block it such that the 
original filer can't flip it?  If so, IMO that would be best, as a second 
user could then "confirm" it.

If it's not possible to block, unconfirmed could at least be made the 
default and the wranglers could complain about (and change) bugs filed as 
"confirmed" as they assign them.  The message should eventually get out, 
and having a second user confirm the bug could actually be quite useful 
for busy devs trying to prioritize their bugs.
