I think it's much harder to set up sendmail or SMTP.  Setting up a web
proxy is hardly a nightmare, and as I said it benefits a wide range of
users.  Specifically for submitting *Emacs bugs* it's a good solution.

I'd love that: sendmail or SMTP for those who want it, and HTTP for
those who need it.

The web form would take some work for the confirmation e-mails, but
surely it would be worth it?  Would it help if I put it together?
