That's not really the reason why we don't already notify other
contributors. The problem is how to figure out who already gets a copy
of the mails that are sent to a bug and doesn't need a second copy.[1]

It certainly needs to be made easier to subscribe to a bug when you
send a message to a bug, but that's a bug that is filed, and I kind of
already have a plan for doing it properly.
