I don't see the lack of uniqueness as a real problem.
Can you give an example/scenario that points out what
problems might arise from it?  I'm not saying there
are none; I just can't see them yet.

What you show there are descriptions of solutions.
It's the problems they're intended to fix that I have
trouble imagining (so far).

[FWIW, for my libraries I use "<libname>-send-bug-report".
In this case the command just invokes `browse-url' with
a `mailto:' that constructs a mail skeleton with Subject
line and some instructions and the emacs-version in the
body.  (Sending an email isn't much in the way of
"submitting" a report.)]
