True, the german menu entry also includes wished (translated back something 
like "report problems and whishes")

The reason is more a technical one. All those entries end up in the bugzilla 
database, where other users can find them, developers can ask for more 
details, other users can vote on them, etc.

A general feedback form would be technically possible, no question about that, 
but the projects lacks the human resources for this.
It would need several people for translating the feedback into English, 
sorting and merging it, filtering it into categories, etc.

I guess if enought advanced users volunteer to work on something like that the 
technical basics would soon be in place.
