Which bugreport tool are you talking about? reportbug? There are several
others in Debian, iirc.

Could you please give examples of the points you mention above, so that
those could be resolved?

Yes, it certainly is.  
If you're talking about reportbug, I'm not sure I know what you're
talking about, thoug;  I find the language quite clear (but then again,
I am probably not the right person to judge that from a new-user point
of view).
