This sounds like a great idea that addresses many of the problems
raised in the discussion at DebConf. It seems like people might want
to disable the notify-me behavior by default but might still want to
be notified of changes within certain packages. It sounds like what
you're proposing would definitely be flexible enough to allow for this
sort of thing but I'd thought I'd mention it anyway.
