How does sending directly to from reportbug to an ISP's smarthost
validate the user's email address better than sending directly from
reportbug to a HTTP POST somewhere?

It is not necessary that there is anywhere any HTML form that refers
to the posting URL; only reportbug would need to know it.

                                  procedure statement that the kind and type
                             of each actual parameter be compatible with the
                       kind and type of the corresponding formal parameter."
