You still need a windows license. A license of a system you dont reall
know. You cannot force anyone to purchase a windows license just to test
if a recent change regresses on windows.

On the other hand a person that is interested in windows support and
with the needed system can easily do the testing, reporting and bug

Marco, it would be great if you could help with this.
