I haven't had time to fully check out ABRT but are they requiring the user to 
have a valid bugzilla account?  If I remember the original discussion around 
ABRT at FUDCon Boston was not to require one.

SPAM can be handled through a captcha if needed.

As far as not being able to contact the reporter, that is why they have the 
option of being cc'd to the report.  They will be advised when filing the bug 
that without a point of contact if the developer has questions and cannot 
contact them that the bug could be closed as insufficient info.

There are still some finer points which need to be worked out.
