1. Using Auto-Submitted to avoid loops -- and, therefore, the risk of loops if we send notifications for auto-submitted messages -- is sufficiently important that the current "MUST NOT" text should stay.


2. The use cases for notifications on auto-submitted messages are sufficiently important that the text should be changed. [Please suggest new text, in this case.]

3. "SHOULD NOT" is an acceptable compromise. The current "MUST NOT" should be changed to "SHOULD NOT", with some added text to explain the danger very clearly. [In this case, you can suggest text, or I'll craft it.]

I could go along with that, assuming suitable wording, but I find it difficult to come up with such wording. IMO there is considerable value in having a really simple rule on Auto-Submitted and loops.
