I think that it is certainly good to be aware of some of the more 
nasty/unexpected bugs (like the Tally bug from 6 that was fortunately 
fixed in 7).  A public database would help with that.

It's not exactly a bug database, but it needs no setup, and it's 
accessible to anyone.  The company may choose to participate if they 
wish so.
