As far as I've seen NEEDMOREINFO used in bugzilla, it is on the same level as 
NEW, ACCEPTED and FIXED. So new bugs come in as new, and someone looks at 
them and accepts the bug if the information is complete enough to work on the 
bug, and sets it to FIXED INVALID or NEEDMOREINFO if it's invalid or doesn't 
have enough information to reproduce it.

So far I've always left a bug on NEW until I could reproduce it, NEEDMOREINFO 
would be more clear, but I don't feel very strong about this either way.
