Django deliberately doesn't pass a request objects when rendering 400 and 500 error pages. It's recommended to keep them as simple as possible and don't e.g. interact with the database (see #22011) or do anything that might cause further errors. You can always customize error views in your app and pass a request objects to templates, but my advise is to avoid it.

You can also start a discussion on DevelopersMailingList if you don't agree.
