Right, but is "improving bug report quality" the aim of the bug
reporting? I believe it rather is "improving software quality".

A newbiesh bug report as the one that started this thread is not very
helpful, but it definitely has a point: a potential user of our
operating system was unable to start the GNOME environment she was
looking for.

I might agree if you are suggesting we need different channels for that
kind of bug reports (and I believe we have some).
