I beleive some people would be glad to help digging into users problems and 
formulating bug reports (if there was a fault) or help the user to make it 
work.  It is great to help both users and developers.

If the same people have triage mandate too it would save a wait step in the 

In the bugzilla the ombudsmen/bug friend should give her email/name, and also  
email of the user.

The ombudsme could note that they are that in their sig if they want.
I do not think any more kind of categorising is needed.

As wobo said: This system should be cleraly advertised.
Maybe in forum rules (sticky post) and in the wiki.
