There seems to be a misunderstanding; at least my surprise was not
caused by the proposal to remove the package from testing (actually,
I mentioned this as the most probably option in my first mail in the
original bug report), but by the fact that I wouldn't have known
about the removal bug without the later CC by Jonathan.

In this case, "X-Debbugs-Cc: $original_bug|$maintainer_address" would
have been enough :)
