As an addenda, from v1, different teams and developers DO want different
1. Assign to herd, CC all others (eg: GNOME, base-system)
2. Assign to first maintainer, CC herd and others (eg: net-mail)

That was deliberately why I had logic about using the order in the
metadata.xml file, with the addition that later duplicate entries of an
email would override the first one.

Your generic rule of (assign to first non-herd maintainer, CC rest)
doesn't fit all of the cases.
