Exactly, users are reporting bugs against a product called "Fedora", not 
against another party's product called "package".

In that sense it's a Fedora package maintainer's duty to arbitrate 
processing bug reports and communicate them to appropriate channels 
and/or initiate appropriate measures, while keeping the impact on the 
Fedora user and bug-reporters low.

In some situations, this means the package maintainer to implement a 
patch, in others, to forward a bug report to upstream, in some it may 
mean to initiate a direct contact between upstream and bug reporter.

It's simply another case of there is "no size fits all", except that 
Fedora MUST continue to carry some central address to receiving bug 
reports on Fedora's bugs. Currently that's bugzilla.
