I tried it in that page but I didn't see any difference.  It
might mean that there's no serious bug today or that I did
something wrong...

Well, though it might not measure up to your ideal, how about
using the `w3m-fontify-after-hook'?

 (lambda nil
   (when (and w3m-current-url
	      (string-match "\\`http://bugs\\.debian\\.org/";
     (outline-minor-mode 1)
     (set (make-local-variable 'outline-level) (lambda () 1))
     (set (make-local-variable 'outline-regexp)
	  "\\(Outstanding\\|Resolved\\) bugs --"))))
