I'm all about the implicit subscription.  The only addendum to that is
that the UI /must/ have some way of informing people that you are the
default contact, so that people don't go explicitly subscribing you to
bugs that you're already implicitly subscribed to, because they think
you might be interested, or need to know about it.
