I think that's a positive feature of the Debian BTS. People who are unable

I disagree with you there. If somebody sees a random application crash,
then files a report saying "the application doesn't work please fix it
for me", that's not useful indeed. But somebody who says "When I tick
that option box, then click that button, the program crashes" likely has
no clue of reportbug or reportbug-ng or he may have added a stack trace
- but still, it's a useful bug report. Not even to speak about bug
reports with a lower severity - wishlist or a little UI problem. Not
everybody knows about reportbug-ng.
The power of Canonical's (and therefore Ubuntu's) Launchpad and the
integration with apport makes for a lot of bug reports, and a lot of
*useful* bug reports. These reports mostly come from people who'd have
used reportbug or reportbug-ng, I think, but I also think a significant
part wouldn't have reported the bug otherwise.
But then again, that's just my opinion. Maybe I should file a wishlist
bug against the BTS. :-)
