Unfortunately, this is a bad idea as it is now. We still tell mirror
maintainers to enter semi-private email addresses into the form. The
introduction of http://cvs.d.o violated the privacy of this data, but
adding them to bugs.d.o does so much much more.
There is certainly a rising need to collect public mirror admin contact
addresses. However, there's also a need to collect private ones as well,
because we in Debian need to have a way to contact mirrors without our
mails possibly getting stuck in some large queue.

Andreas Barth jumped in, too.
This is also a chance for me to publicly apologize for being negligent in
assigning new people to cover for me at mirrors@ while I'm busy IRL.
