In the opposite direction it doesn't work well either. 
ABRT submits crash reports in Fedora's bugzilla even if 3rd party add-ons
are the culprit. All the Fedora packager can do is to set CLOSED/CANTFIX
with a request to submit a bug report in a 3rd party bug tracker. And if
that isn't done (which happens regularly IMO), 3rd party packagers would
need to hunt down such reports in Fedora's bugzilla.
