Could you expand on that? I don't know what would be the down-side of
having debbugs recognise the pseudoheader in a message such as

The message was sent to <761980-done@bugs.debian.org> with an
explanation of why it is being closed, and also a pseudoheader with
some instructions to the BTS.

What would be wrong with having the BTS recognise that pseudoheader
and obey it?

That one did not take effect, until I also sent it to the bug report
<761980@bugs.debian.org>. Neither that nor <submit@bugs.debian.org>
seem appropriate for a message which is not intended to have anything
but an administrative effect, so <761980-done@bugs.debian.org> seems
the correct place to send that message.
