I like modularity.

-  ddpo-by-mail already mails about RC bugs.
-  (serious, certain) lintian errors warrant RC bugs [1]
=> THEN (serious, certain) lintian errors should be filed as RC bugs.

You gain the following:

1) no need to special-case lintian errors in ddpo-by-mail
2) RC bugs are "useful" for other purposes (migration, stats, MIA, ...)


[1] or at least it seems so to me, by looking at the page given by
