Honestly, I think you're underrating the capacity of our developer body. Taking responsibility for potential problem doesn't mean knowing the answer to everything that might happen, and it doesn't mean fixing it yourself. It means staying around, and staying active, until the problem is fixed. It's the difference between asking for help and searching for help: between saying "hello, can anyone help? No. Oh well. I tried." and "hello, can anyone help? No? Hrm, how about over here? No? What about you guys? Well, how about any tips? ..."
