That was my motivation writing debbugs.el. I've also started an nnir
integration, but I failed badly due to missing gnus knowledge.

OTOH, the debbugs SOAP interface is poor, there are only very basic
information one could retrieve, and there is no "activiation" function
(changing whatever for a bug). So it might be better, we first make a
prototype implementation integrating it with nnir etc, before adding it
to Emacs core. For this purpose, it might be sufficient to bring it to
elpa (or gnus) for a while.

I would volunteer to participate in this integration work. I have
learned, I'm not able to do it alone.
