It seems like if someone is going to all the work of confirming a bug

I don't think we can assume that. If, say, I'd seen an issue reported
twice but not yet with sufficient info, I might set it to CONFIRMED, but
it's not yet been triaged.
This additional state only becomes useful if there are people
looking in Bugzilla trying to reproduce bugs that have already been
triaged. Is that actually the case? Or are there so many untriaged
bugs that no one really cares whether the "extra credit" work of
reproduction has been done on all of the triaged bugs for a specific
It's not necessarily about 'trying to reproduce', there are many cases
where we know multiple people are experiencing a bug just from duplicate
reports or follow-up comments.
