reporter   ~0014076

This is not always the case. I am frequently asked to report issues into my institution's Mantis database on behalf of another user. In that situation, I do need to change the reporter's name to the person who really did report the issue. I do not think this behavior should change.

A better request would be allowing a threshold to be set for this level of access. In some cases, it may be a good idea to prevent developers from changing from changing the reporter but allow managers to do so.
