Well yes, I was assuming that the current owner would be informed
automatically. In any case, whenever a reporter does not state
explicitly that "I emailed X a week ago with no reply" the TUs typically
ask him to do so first, so I don't see any difference with how things
are previously even if the current owner is not automatically informed.
