Sounds good, yes.  But as you describe it, it doesn't cover those cases
where people invoke the command from an unrelated buffer (*scratch* or
so), e.g. because they needed to restart Emacs.  Adding some
explanations to the initial text in the bug report buffer of the default
reporting command would thus be good I think.
