I was thinking only of the former.  In particular, when doing bug triage
it would be nice if debbugs-gnu knew that cperl and org and etc were
primarily handled by people who don't necessarily read emacs-bugs
religiously.  I mean, I know the first two, but I don't know "etc".  So
having that knowledge in a machine-parseable form would aid bringing a
bug report to the attention of people who knows how to fix the bug.
