I think just having something like a 'blocks-gate' tag would be fine. I'm not sure it could be badly abused. I'm envisioning elastic recheck giving a message along the lines of: This failure has been tagged as a gate blocking bug, please avoid rechecking until it has been addressed. This should inform people that they shouldn't blindly recheck that patchset and it has limited scope for abuse.
