No, the maintainer(s) should do that.  That is not a submitter's
responsibility.

Bullshit.  There's plenty advantage for a submitter to *always* use the
Debian BTS to report bugs, namely because, as a Debian user, I don't
give a rats ass when upstream fixes a bug; I'm only interested in when
that fix is released in a Debian package.
