IIUC, Debbugs already does this for some packages ("packages" meaning
Debbugs packages, not ELPA packages).  For example, bugs for "org-mode"
are forwarded to address@hidden, and bugs for "cc-mode" are sent
to address@hidden

This is set up by hand, in the /etc/debbugs/Maintainers config file, and
we can easily add more maintainer addresses for other Debbugs
pseudo-packages as necessary.
