Yes, this is a good problem to solve for many reasons.

While I agree that adding custom headers is likely to be a pain and make
users come up with hacks, some headers are very well standardized. Most
notably In-Reply-To and Message-ID. IMHO, and "id" for the bug should be
the Message-ID of the original email, and any "comments" should be
In-Reply-To said email. That way you can just reply to a bug from your
email client and it works. Just like a mailing list :)
