Two reasons:

  - Distros like getting their own bug reports, so either they'd have to
    rewire bug-buddy to report bugs to their system (which is probably a
    good idea, but the only distributor who has done any of that work is
    Ximian), or turn off all GNOME Project bug reporting entirely

  - To hide the idea of "GNOMEness", much in the same way Red Hat hid the
    "About KDE..." menu item in every KDE app. Not saying this is a good
    thing, just pointing out that it happens. :-)

I agree, but I can understand why distros think differently.
