Are we sure about this? Some bugs won't be clear where do they really
belong until a developer looks at it, and SoaS people may also like
tracking sugar-only bugs on their bugtracker. For example, Ubuntu
tracks Debian bugs on their bugtracker and Fedora tracks GNOME, X,

Also, normally a bug in a downstream is not closed when upstream fixes
it, but when it gets into a release on that downstream. Which is the
biggest reason for splitting bug trackers, IMO.
