FTR, I believe this change to be fully reasonable as the "summary" keyword
has always been advertised this way:
* summary: automatic summary mails about the state of a package

And the fact that he sends one mail per e-mail instead of one mail per
package makes it even better (far less annoying).

(And of course people can also unsubscribe from the summary keyword in the
PTS if they wish)

Keep up the great work Lucas!
