When I want to change submitter address, I will want to change all
submitter references, not only from not-archived bugs (imagine
somebody which found this bug 'again' and want to contact with
submitter). I understand that mail headers should not be changed, but
should not be a problem changing your address from bugs that you
submitted (maybe a good idea to add a command that do it quietly ?).

I understand 'archived' meanning, but submitter field should be a
changeable field anyway.

I have a question, are these commands secured somehow ? (can we be
afraid that some script / spammer would change this field from our bug
reports?) Is there any doc about that?

Thanks !
