We don't necessarily need separate bug tracking systems, but in order to
share a bug tracking system, the system would need to make it convenient to
work in the context of a particular distribution (e.g., for a Debian
developer to avoid seeing Ubuntu-specific bugs in query results).

I don't think there exists a bug tracking system which meets this need
today, which is why Canonical is developing a bug tracking system which is
designed to meet the needs of open source projects collaborating with each
other on common code bases (Malone).
