The "Platform" field is not very obvious in the bugzilla UI and doesn't show up at all in bugzilla-generated emails, ChangeLogs, or commit messages. Many of our bugs are filed via tools like webkit-patch or sheriffbot which could be taught about the Platform entry, but doing so would decrease the usability of the tools and I suspect many people would get it wrong.

Right, I agree.
