I was thinking this same thing, but then I realized that people *would* 
include a pseudo-header for follow-up mails if it were documented that this 
were necessary to get past the spam filters.  If I'm not mistaken, 
reportbug already includes pseudo-headers for follow-up mails.  And, we 
could even whitelist the bug submitter and the maintainer just to make it 
easier for the two most likely to comment.
