Not sure if we're talking the same: currently, 17 (16 if you count the
fixed gigedit package in experimental) contain
debian-multimedia at as the maintainer field.

If I correctly understand the proposal, then this very address should
be used for discussions with users.

Hence, to avoid users being spammed by bug reports from the BTS, we need
to change the maintainer fields in all those packages to pkg-mmm.
