Rather than using addresses of individuals, I think it is better to have
more permanent addresses [Computer Science meta-pattern #0: add another
layer of indirection], in the form of aliases that (almost) speak for
themselves. We have some of those already.

Isn't there a debian-bod mailings list?

Should have an alias.

Security is probably special (currently security@debian.org ->
debian-security@lists, right?). For the others, IMO we should have
{pgp,listmaster,publicity,mirror,dns}@debian.org aliases.
