The question here is: are you interested on bug reports coming from
builds that contains unknown modifications?

If yes, well, use the revno of the common ancestor with trunk (if you
figure out a good way to obtain it.)

Otherwise, you *really* want the revision-id.

(I guess that at some point into the future bug reports for sanctioned
feature branches will be accepted too. Then, the "common ancestor with
trunk" approach will need an overhaul. Using the revision-id of the
common ancestor with the parent branch on Savannha would help on that
scenario. Plus the revision-id of the tip of the user's branch, for
knowing if he has local commits.)
