You are correct, it does not.
The problem with your 'concept' is that SC sorta thinks of a spam as a
piece of evidence - where it is going to make a report to various
notifieds of a particular item and the content of /that/ item.
Think of it on the one hand as a 'spamcop report'. Spamcop doesn't much
want to call something a spamcop report which is 'different' from the
original item, ergo it doesn't like material changes.
What you are proposing is to get the 'benefit' of a material change
[pretend: such as pasting your urls into the body of the spam], but not
actually /doing/ that - by segregating your additional material - while
'presuming' that this extra material /should/ be part of the /spamcop/
Think of the report on the other hand as 'your report' - because you are
responsible for it and spamcop is simply a tool to aid you in the
lookups and the 'addressing' and mailing phase.
So, as a paid reporter, you are 'entitled' to add some addresses to the
report. That is 'easy' to accomplish with the addressing mailing part
of the gizmo.
But, what you are asking for is for the parsing engine to 'reach out' to
another field. The parsing engine is /not/ a simple part to be asking
to do some new duties. This new duty business of the nameservice is a
pretty big chunk of operation to be digesting. I doubt if Julian wants
to be reaching out for additional fields which might contain multiple
urls. It seems that he wants to decrease the number of urls he is
notifying, not increase.
