Because the point of my original message was to not clutter everyone
who doesn't want them with ACKs. For instance, users, and third-party
bug tracking systems. This was prompted by the GCC GNATS system, which
has dozens of PRs created by these ACKs. There's no good reason GNATS
should have to know anything about Debbugs.
Why send out messages with no informational content if all or most
people are just going to discard them?
