The core engineering team uses Bugzilla. If they have to spend time sifting
through other venues that's time they cant spend on fixing and featuring
Rev. Engineering also reads the Improve list, but again, there's a limit to
the amount of time they can spend on that.

I will admit that there is a certain amount of squeaky wheel getting the
grease through other venues, too. A lot of Runtime employees read the list,
more participate in the forums and on the Improve list. If you are a
RevSelect vendor, there is a weekly 1 hour chat session for planning. Its
not for rev issues but, very rarely an issue does get mentioned sorted
through and escalated as a result. But if it isnt in Bugzilla, its clearly
not important enough to anyone to investigate.
