What do you think that tells us about the thing we are shipping?

Yes we would.

If that bug tracker would have a component field called distribution and 
in was fedora that would not be a problem but neither would it if 
everybody used the same kind of bug tracker or a global mutual bug 
tracker for all distro to use but that could be solved via Fedora tag 
line in the bug report itself with relevant upstream.

Quite frankly that has been proven not to work and quite frankly the 
packager should be the one playing that middle man ( which is not 
working either ).
