Raw Idea: one more control field for sponsors


while working on a package I'm going to sponsor, it occurred to me with
all the DD, DM and sponsoring going on, that I'd like to have a field
in debian/control, like eg.

Bugs-To: some_dd@debian.org, ...

to have some_dd@debian.org automatically subscribed to the bugs for
this package, much in the same vein as the 'Uploaders:' field works.

I have found out that there are other ways to get at the bug reports
for some random package, but this could probably simplify things from
the perspective of a sponsor.

I would also like to know whether you think it is a good idea that a
sponsor be automatically subscribed to the bugs for all packages he

Kind regards,
