Fine by me; if it doesn't happen often, then embargoing them would be
fine.  My occasional experience with distro reporting processes shows
that they happen a fair amount there (often as a reference to an
upstream or downstream bug report).  The major ones can probably be
special-cased easily as needed.

It would be.  It is a use-case that according to your explanation
doesn't apply to Python's tracker, so a YAGNI until proved otherwise.

Sounds OK to me, except that there are some modules that handle HTML
(and XML? can that be practically distinguished from HTML?), and I
would suppose people would want upload examples and test cases.
