You can't expect this from every upstream developer...
Maybe from big projects, but not every small programm with maybe just a
snipped in it.
I also restist to sign up for an account on any different distribution,
just to be able to comment to bugs.

If would be far better, if you could send the valid looking backtraces
to the upstream bugzilla via clicking 'send upstream' in our bugzilla,
but don't know if this is easy to implement.
Maybe connecting some bugzillas with openid is a better choice.
