This is a bit tangential to the rest of the discussion, but exactly the
same has occurred to me. We do have useful "Reply or subscribe to this
bug." notices on individual bug pages, but we have nothing of the sort
for pkgreport.cgi pages.

Does anyone care to propose a feature request (possibly with patch) for
the corresponding template with a short mention that the PTS could be
used to subscribe to package bugs? As we already have a line mentioning
the PTS, that could probably be done using very little extra space (for
a lot of benefit, IMHO).
