In the specific case of mosh, I have posted three RFS messages to
debian-mentors since filing the ITP, in addition to the creation of the
RFS bug after the sponsorship-requests procedure was announced, so the
package was certainly being worked on.  However I did not CC the RFS
messages to the ITP bug, so they weren't recorded there.  Would this be
a recommended practice?  How should it interact with the new
sponsorship-requests process?

My first RFS to debian-mentors was posted two days after filing the
initial ITP.

As a post-script, although I am sad to see this furore, I am selfishly
happy to see my package finally get some attention after languishing in
-mentors for months and months.   ;)
