The problem is that it's near impossible to say with certainty whether those issues created by that developer were unavoidable as part of doing the job. Many times bugs are the fallout from dysfunctions either in the team (poor requirements, planning) or in the technology (buggy, poorly-implemented abstractions that the developer is forced to build on top of). Of course it's reasonable to blame it all on the incompetence of the developer, but in some cases it genuinely isn't his fault despite his name being attached to the bug.
