+lots on adding a module field (independent of automatically adding
maintainers to the nosy list, it would assist in "I just did a major
cleanup of module X, are there any old bugs I can kill off").

Of course, it will take a while for the field to be filled in on
existing issues, but even having it be possible would be very nice.
