The tools should always be capable of submitting reports. When they
can't, it's a bug. There's no special work that needs to happen to
enable it.

Having reporting working is a reasonably high priority because the whole
point of having pre-releases is to catch bugs, and the point of
automated bug reporting tools is to make catching and reporting bugs
easier. Writing tools for that purpose and then not having them work in
pre-release phase would be quite a waste :)
