No I think it's a good idea. I've seen this numerous time on
debian-french. Ie discussions that lead to submit bug reports or to provide
more information on an existing bug report.

I think it's wise to add such a warning in reportbug and bug. You could
also speak about debian-devel-<your language> and debian-<your language>
that may exist and be very helpful.

Very few posts are left unanswered.
