IMHO, you have to be careful that the approval process doesn't introduce excess 
delays because otherwise you'd encourage even more security updates not to be 
marked as such (and if you implement the automarking when a security bug is 
referenced, also missing Bugzilla references to avoid the security marking), 
which would be counterproductive.
