Details

I think we ought to be able to specify email notifications on
change by status so that the entire list of possible status changes
appears.  For example, verification engineers might care about all email
until VERIFIED, but most developers won't care about status beyond
RESOLVED.  With custom workflow, this will become increasingly important
because users may want to know when state changes to DEFERRED for
example, but not care much as long as things continue to progress.  It
all depends on the role of the "watcher".

Notify me when a bug I have a role in:

I am strongly in favor of WONTFIX'ing this in favor of bug 278455, which already has a partially-complete implementation.

I would not accept a UI that had this table of checkboxes for each possible role.
If I have been CC'ed to get my opinion on this bug, then yes, WONTFIX seems appropriate. The UI would become over-complex.
Okay. In that case this is WONTFIX in favor of bug 278455, in the way that I described here:
