E-mail does not scale well. It was great in the 1990s, when the
Internet was smaller and people knew each other. About half the
world's population now has some sort of Internet connectivity.
Expecting organizations to be able to understand reports from such a
diverse group of people is unreasonable.

Lots of organizations won't have specialized abuse handling teams. If
they don't have a specialized abuse handling team then they are
unlikely to have people who understand the reports or processes for
acting on them. Forcing these organizations to pretend that they will
read and understand and then act on a report will never make it so.

So let's stop pretending and put energy into something more productive
than asking people to set up an autoresponder for an e-mail address
whose mailbox will never be checked by a human.
