I think you may have misunderstood the suggestion.
If you change c-submit-bug-report to send mail to
address@hidden, with an "X-Debbugs-Package: cc-mode" header,
then all those reports will still end up on the bug-cc-mode list, not
the bug-gnu-emacs list (ie, address@hidden will act like an alias for
bug-cc-mode). But they will get entered into the tracker and get bug
numbers. So this change would actually make it _less_ easier to lose
cc-mode bugs.

This is what Gnus does, for example, and they have the same XEmacs
issues as you do. It seems to be working fine for them.
