At least the submitter should be able, too, additionally not only
Debian developers are package-maintainers.

Imvho this issue (spam accidentally closes or marks as forwarded)
would be solved if it was simply required that all messages to control
xxx-done or xxx-forward had to either start with some magic line
(similar to submit which requires "Package: foo") or include some
X-Header. (Not all MUAs allow adding arbitrary headers.)
