Setting aside the policy discussion, the Skara tooling will at least 
alert reviewers that something is amiss by showing a warning message 
where the JBS issue link and description would go:


  * ⚠️ Failed to retrieve information on issue |8250553|.

Perhaps an RFE for the Skara team could make this more explicit in the 
case where it can't retrieve the information because the bug is 
Confidential. See the following PR, which is referring to a Confidential 
bug, for an example of how it looks now:
