I think not.  Unnecessary expansion of the version popup.

The last thing we want is a bug reporter to not report a bug because
they don't know the answer to a question.  (If you are a bug reporter
reading this, just fill out the fields you know and hit submit).

For the community bug reporters who do know whether they are using F11
or F14, they'll know to report that, or the build number.  Keywords or
the body of the description is good for this.  The professional bug
reporters already do this well.

For triage by engineers working on one of the three build streams (the
10.1.3, the as yet unnamed F14, or the as yet unnamed F12 ARM), it would
be best if they examine every new ticket and complete the metadata.
Don't ever rely on the bug reporter to give you your metadata in the
initial capture; verify it.
