My guess is that it's relatively easy for a semi-technical person to
be able to map back from a visible problem in a desktop app to a
package name, and finally from a package back into the bodhi comments.

But a lot of issues in the core OS from the kernel up to gnome-desktop
can require extensive knowledge to diagnose, and we just can't expect
as much feedback.

Especially for critpath components that people might be more hesitant
to update. Pages like this one:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_debug_Xorg_problems

are a big step forward, but we may need some way for people to give
feedback about updates without having to debug enough to make a rough
stab at "kernel" or "xorg-x11-drv-intel" or "gnome-power-manager".
