I have been trying for several years now to get somebody to do a 
properly integrated version of openstreetbugs and obviously things
like defaulting based on the current map view would be a perfectly 
sensible thing for such a tool to do.

Like Fred I'm really not sure about using an external site like this in 
much the same way that I've resisted integrating an external tool like 
openstreetbugs into the main site. I will go and have a look at 
uservoice now though, assuming that it's back up...
