That's why the idea of an all purpose centralized bug tracker was born.
If there is a bug which belongs most propably upstream, you can link it 
upstream, so the devs can have a look into upstream bts, or even other 
distros bts' for that specified bug.

Reducing bug reports is not a good idea, a better idea is to have bug 
reports e.g. from main packages are getting a higher priority over time
