No, the question should be the other way around: why use that? How is 
that a measure for how fit a person is to take the role of Approver? Do 
you have any data that supports the notion that someone fixing a number 
of high priority bugs is a more qualified person to fill the role of 
Approver than somebody else who has done significant contributions to 
the project?

Please don't just suggest _other_ random measures one might use, but 
first considder what such a measure actually measures, and if that 
really is related to the question at hand: does a person most likely 
make a good Approver?
