Ideallisticly, I think we should use the latter, but I can see reasons why
the first one might be better.

My suggestion is to separate clearly between the emails sent to external
requestors and the emails sent to misc. "watchers".  The first one should
be sent individually with only the "right" name and email in the subject.
The latter should be sent with a long Cc or Bcc list.  Whether to use Cc
or Bcc should be configurable.
