That is a good idea.
I have noticed that the public bug submission forms of many open source projects adopt a similar approach.
One thing, is that I don't think the advanced form should be restricted to uses above a certain level, instead just bury the option of which submit form should be used in the preferences under a slightly cryptic name, and the documentation about how to change the preference and why you would want to in the guide to the Monastery.
Any one who reads all those fine manuals, is likely to RTFM before posting, so we don't need to force them to lay out their question in a particular style.
