For what it's worth, I like the proposal.

As a user, I'd like to be told that it's been 6 months and nobody's
gonna look at my bug it if I don't do something proactively myself. 
IMHO much better to ping users so they can keep their bugs alive if
they still exist rather than the bug entries just bitrotting and
nobody knowing what state they're in.
