I don't think I've seen a post revolving around this particular bug yet that has been negative or poorly received. Very much the opposite in fact; the general consensus from those who are lucky enough to experience the bug has been incredibly positive, with some people I remember having said "it was the most fun they've had running a strike in a very long time". I think what you have here is a great opportunity to turn a game mode many have grown tired of and put a nice new spin on it.
It's not exactly a secret that the Menagerie is sorely missed, not just because it offered a fantastic targeted loot system, but because it was a six person activity that was just casual fun. It's my belief that this bug with the strikes was, even if unintentional, something that has helped fill that void left behind when the Menagerie was vaulted. If there were a way to incorporate a mode that took the feel of the Menagerie and rolled it into strikes I think it would help scratch that itch a lot of people have been having.
Will it be a replacement for the Menagerie? Probably not, in all honesty. But the desire for a game mode or activity that captures the essence of what the Menagerie was has been very clearly in demand. Put it on a weekly rotation not unlike Nightfalls. Give it special team challenges present only in this game mode specific to the maps in rotation. Give it the option for a hard mode with its own loot and special set of challenges to overcome. Perhaps even create special weapons that only drop from this particular mode for people to chase.
I feel like this strike bug has sat you all down on a veritable goldmine that's begging to be tapped, and I most certainly can't be the only person who would love to see you expand upon the kind of experience this bug has provided. The demand for something like it is certainly there. It's my greatest hope that you at least consider the possibility of making such an activity a reality in some fashion. I honestly believe it could be great.
Edit: For the sake of clarity, what I'm proposing isn't something that's meant to replace playlist strikes, but rather is a separate activity that can be chosen at will. Just as the Vanguard subscreen on the system map has the options of strikes and Nightfalls, this new mode could be a third entry to choose from for example.

Via the CS:GO blog:
I've seen some people say that Boba was marginal and is mainly remembered for having a cool costume. Fair enough, but I also noticed that Vader doesn't mess around with him the way he keeps changing 'the deal' with Lando. And Han Solo is also concerned when he hears the bounty hunter is around ("Boba Fett? Where?") There is a baseline level of respect for the character.
Like i get it, strikes are legit free and casual and stuff, but sometimes i wanna just blast through strikes for an hour with the new raid weapons I got or whatever. I miss being able to just hop on for some strikes with friends to dick around and possibly get a cool weapon like treads upon stars, imago loop, or grasp of malok. I'm cool with having nightfall rewards too, maybe even have nightfall strikes be able to drop curated rolls of the special weapons while regular strikes cant IDK.
Just seems like the playlist exists to get your bounties done and leave as of now.

EYES DOWN THE SIGHTS GUARDIAN.
I made the mistake of doing the new light quest on my main. Shaw Ham treats me like a kinderguardian and it makes the strike insufferable.
Doing it on my alts, and its just Ghost and Zavala saying how Navota is so weak her brood is thinking of leaving her so she needs to kill us, no big deal, just another dead wizard. Perfectly average strike.
The dialogue works so much better on my alts. But since i made the mistake of doing the quest on my main, Taeko-4 is forever thanking me for avenging his blueberries
