The problem is bug reports. Some people don't like registering for things.
In fact some people dislike it ALOT.
It would be terrible for a bug report not to be filed simply because someone
didn't feel like registering. So while I personally wouldn't mind it being a
requirement that everyone register (so that you could comment on them with a
request for more information and have some actual hope they'd respond) in
the end it may not be the best idea.
Though I will say there seem to be more anonymous feature requests than
anonymous bug reports.
