1. Accepting ~1k users.
2. No reaction for a long time because there is no notification.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 multiple times.
4. At some point someone notices it (for example, some channel that posts news about TG).
5. More users starting to check it.
6. As a result, more flood and spam, scaled with step repeats.
It's better to notify ~1k people than to deal with ~10k or even more. Plus, not everyone will even create a card, so that's already less than ~1k.
I have alternative suggestion though. In window that blocks card creation, add a button "Notify availablity", so only those who really want to create a card, will be notified. And of course, since buttons are not on plain sight (you need to open a card or search first), only those who want to create cards, will be notified.
Speaking of the steps you provided, yeah it makes sense. However, still I can't figure out why they're rolling out gradually if they're not afraid of spam.
Bug reporting platform is new, but there are many old issues and suggestions. And of course, many reports will be buried underneath. So I think gradual rolling out aims to reduce old reports stream, so when new problems will arise, they will get proper attention. And with old reports stream reduced, new reports regarding old issues can get proper attention too, because there will be much less of them.

Hopefully I'm not posting a duplicate suggestion - I went through the thread but as far as I've been able to see, nobody mentioned this :)
