I intend to submit a patch for reportbug to implement the first part of this idea. It basically asks an additional question before the question about bccing multiple e-mail addresses but only if the reported regression is against a package with a version number containing +deb7u1. I am not completely sure if the maintainer of reportbug will approve this but we can discuss this in the bug report later.

I could also implement a similar feature for stable releases. So if the security likes to be informed about regression like that, please let me know.
