Writing a good bug report can easily take 10 minutes or more. Plus every
developer should know the cost of a context switch.

Chances of a "report" happening via IRC or email already being well
structured and complete are lower, as the tracker interface will include
certain hints and brings a certain context/perspective to mind.

A developer of a long running, highly complex project will usually have
a virtually unlimited amount of work to do. Filing tickets that users
could file is a very inefficient use of valuable time.

If a user want a bug fixed, it's in their interest to file it properly
and to not waste a developers time. There are of course cases, where
talking to a developer first is better, say when it's not clear if it's
a bug or a feature, or when hunting a heisenbug. I don't know any
developer who would be more approachable, helpful and patient than Paul
Davis in such cases (as mad as he made me in design matters, sometimes ;)).
