The harm is in thinking that bugs have been properly reported, when in
reality they're not being sent to the people who are most capable of
dealing with them.

It's sort of like the kernel bugzilla; you can report things there,
but there's no guarantee that the subsystem maintainers are paying
attention.  That's not to say it's useless, and if it allows the
Coverity folks to get a convenient repository of stuff to check then
fine, but nobody should have any illusions that it's anywhere close to
the best way to actually get bugs fixed.
