Your points are valid, but I think I maybe didn't explain myself well

I was just thinking of it happening in debug mode, not on a live server.

So many people may find bugs but don't know about the collector.  Even just
a link to the collector would encourage more people to report bugs.

There would be a greater volume of false positives, but this is a bug
management issue, not a reason to discourage bug reports.  IMO we should be
aiming at a very stable, bug free system, and for that we need lots of

All this thinking just came from the observation that real bugs often don't
get reported because someone doesn't know about the collector, or even how
to report bugs well.
