I would agree.  In practice most "light weight feedback" will be via
the help at support.osgeo.org email address rather than as proper tracker
bug reports.  The overhead to tracker bug reports is already quite
high even when logging in is not required.  So locking down guest
permissions such that one has to be logged in to submit tracker requests
should be fine.
