This is my viewpoint too, and why I don't plan on implementing or
accepting a patch to do nosubmitter unless someone can convince me

[Submitter is a currently non-optional field; if a bug does not have a
submitter, the BTS will not accept the bug. Making it optional would be
more work than adding the control command.]
