Brian, the issue I feel here is that microsoft requires a sign in
into an account, whereas most av vendors only require the e-mail
and that's it for tracking. Also, unlike all the other av vendors
I've seen, Microsoft requires the detection name, and recommends
adding defenition version.

A) The submission process for anything of this sort, Microsoft or
not, is tedious. (And I'm not disagreeing with you, just pointing
out it's ubiquitous).
B) Though MS could conceivably drop the need for an MS-Account for
tracking purposes, I can understand in this day and age why they
won't. I haven't been able to "contact tech support" or "contact
customer support" for virtually any entity, for years now, without
having first created an account for doing so. You do not have to
use your Microsoft Account as part of a Microsoft Account linked
Windows 10 User Account, either. You can work from a local
account, but when you need to submit feedback (regardless of
mechanism) that requires the MS account, enter the credentials
C) They kinda sorta do have it in the app, via the link I
previously mentioned, which opens the Feedback Hub to where you
can give feedback and all the appropriate categories are already
populated for you. It's not a direct link like the file
submission link, but you can submit files, screenshots, and the
like via the Feedback Hub. I did my false positive reporting this
way, and one of them was fixed in less than 24 hours.
I do wish they had, as part of the Protection History Pane, an
option in the dropdown for a detection that was something like,
"Report false positive," when you believe that's what you have.
It would make life so much easier, as the file in question is
already known and quarantined, and they could easily automate the
snagging and submission of the sample.

The depths of denial one can be pushed to by
outside forces of disapproval can make you not even recognize
yourself to yourself.
