I think that is a misunderstanding. You asked not to get mails
cc'd to both you personally and qemu-trivial at the same time,
and Chen misread this to mean not to cc either address.

Trivial patches should still be sent "To: qemu-devel + Cc: qemu-trivial".

Yes, I think it's probably reasonable to change it to make it not
default to "--git-fallback". Do you want to submit a patch?

(Perhaps we could make it cc qemu-orphan@ if we wanted to
flag up holes in our MAINTAINERS coverage and patches liable
to get lost, but that probably only makes sense if we have people
who would care enough to do that monitoring work.)
