You don't need to use Emacs as your mail client to make use of
`report-emacs-bug'. When you hit `C-c C-c', Emacs opens your mail client
with a new mail message. You just need to paste the content you prepared.

I use Outlook, for instance, and I file Emacs bugs all the time using
`report-emacs-bug' - no problem. The only thing I do in Outlook is hit `C-v'
to paste my bug report.

For the rest - yes, bug reporting by email can be integrated into a
bug-tracking tool. It's not an either/or choice between a Web form and email
