Because (IMHO) we need the functionality of an issue tracker, and we
don't have it implemented.

No.  Perhaps you're motivated to create an Emacs-based issue tracker. 
I'm just motivated to *use* an issue tracker, because I think quality
would improve.  I have not a single bit of interest in developing or
helping to develop Yet Another Issue Tracker, and less so because there
are quite a few free ones to pick from.

I think we had already implicitly agreed to disagree on this one...
Every program has a context.  That doesn't mean that the users who take
the trouble to file a bug report are unable to provide that information. 
report-emacs-bug is great, and if it can be integrated with an IT,
wonderful.  But surely is not a precondition.

"Could be implemented".  Yeah.
