It can't, actually, which is I think is the crux of misunderstanding here. I
think what Artem is proposing is to *auto-create bugzilla accounts* for anyone
who shows up in MAINTAINERS, so that they can be cc'd on a bug report.
However, everyone understood this as "add these people as default assignees,"
which is not the case.

If we auto-create accounts for MAINTAINERS, that would allow them to be cc'd
by an actual human being triaging bugs, but won't lead to any discernable
increase of bugzilla mail.

Artem, please correct me if I'm wrong.
