IMO it is justified as "not suitable for release in view of maintainer".
Having bug reports in the BTS is useless if no-one ever seems them and we 
basically only reply to reports when we see them on the mailing list, not 
if they only make it into the BTS.

So, a program that results in BRs that end up only in the BTS and not in 
the mailing list, is IMHO not suitable for release.

Yes, I suggested the same in my other mail, but I'd disable syslog as well 
as its size is indeterminate and so could still result in us missing the 
installation report.
