They do make sense. Imagine:

Origin: local
Submit-Bugs-To: mailto:admins@localdomain.example.org
Submit-Bugs-Style: email     (i.e. there is no BTS system there,
                              simply send email - could be treated as
			      debbugs though)

Given, Submit-Bugs-Style and Submit-Bugs-To could be merged.


PGP encrypted messages preferred.
