I'd say that PET can effectively override many mails and is much less
noise in the list. The same could be said of many other mails we
receive, like archive notifications, testing migration, and even bug
reports. Not that I'm active now, but I been consistently deleting
most of that stuff since is easier to me to see the report.

"official" tags or headers to use

About all of this, again it shows the usefulness of having fields in
d/control that allow the tools to automatically do things like talking
with upstream bug trackers.
