The vast majority of bug submitters use tools that document the version
number of the package they're reporting the bug against.  The current BTS
semantics with regard to bug versioning have been widely discussed and are
in place for well over a year.  I suggest you update your expectations
regarding the meaning of a bug report with no version information and no
suite tags...
