I also don't like sharing the IP.

The line:

In GNU Emacs (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.24.23)
 of 2016-05-05 built on <IP>.

Is putting the IP there useful?
And I've never found that data useful when doing bug triage.

Should we remove it from the report?

I wouldn't mind that. 

Would instead adding `view-lossage` dump help? That way we can see what commands the user ran to recreate the bug before reporting it. Now view-lossage also lists the commands corresponding to the bindings.
