Why not set NEEDINFO keyword by default when a bug is reported and
a triager or the maintainer removes it then if sufficient information to work
on this bug is already present?

I'd say this being a keyword and not mandatory it will be forgotten often IMHO.
> NEW (+ Triaged keyword):
really fine-grained but useless IMHO. If it has been triaged, there should be 
who works on that bug, and what reason would there be to not accept a bug?

Just my humble opinion. If those help to ease triage, why not.
