I don't like the idea, it's one more step for a package maintainer to
figure out something about the report.

consider: "openoffice.org: wrong color in template", you're widening the
search space for the package maintainer by a factor of 30. Yes, you can
ask the bug submitter, but it's one more step. It makes sense for
packages which have only a few (<=3 ?) packages.

I see the goal to make the UI more simple for the bug submitter, but
dropping or not having data is not helpful. same for not having
architecture and version information.
