How else then would you submit accurate bug reports to the package
maintainer? As I type this, I suppose the goal is not to do that, it
is only to report contract violations.

The notion of asking the user (non-programmer) whether they want to
submit details regarding contract violations is unrealistic.

How would a user know what they should and they should not send when a
contract is violated? It would be confusing.
