I agre wholeheartedly, but sadly I don't think there's no way to really
enforce it. You're always going to get users who say "That's the worst X
I've ever seen" or "Y is better"... at that point, you're probably never
going to get more detail out of them, and if you do, would you really want
to know why your art is "teh sux"?

As much as I hate hiking up the rubber boots and wading through the useless
criticism, it comes with the job. Best thing you can do is ask personally,
usually people will provide some level of courtesy when they realize it's
actually another persons work.
