I don't think the help non-technical users can give is of any less use to the developers. It's just, as you said, things have become more complex, diverse, less personal and less obvious so people tend to give up reporting things or are unsure where to report them.
I see no problem raising bugs against the tests on Launchpad.  If the tests have problems and people ignore them then bugs are not going to be found.  There's no point in making things frustrating for those that want to help.
