I don't think this is a good fit for an option, since whether or not
to include this data or not will be highly situational.

That seems like more typing (and remembering) than I'd prefer.  If we
want to do something like this, my ideal would be closer to how magit
handles chunks: 'n' to go to next, 'k' to kill it.

To elaborate, let's say I move point outside the "body text" part of
the bug report, on top of the auto generated data.  Here, the current
"block" (as detailed above: features, load-path-shadows, major-mode,
etc.) gets highlighted, and the keys no longer does
self-insert-comand, but instead the commands:

 'n' move to next block
 'p' move to previous block
 'e' edit current block (make "block" into regular text, disabling commands)
 'k' kill current block

Even better if you see a help text in the minibuffer when point is on
these blocks.

Just an idea.  Not sure if it's worth implementing, but I think it
would be useful.

Best regards,
