It's a reasonably choice I think.  Last week, I created a spamassassin bug
report requesting relaxing the dcc_options restrictions to allow passing -x
as well, so there's some notification over there that the issue exists.

The reporter function is called manually via the command line

  spamassassin --report <spam_email_message>

when a mail admin wants to report spam to the various antispam filtering DBs
(dcc, spamcop, razor).  It just simplifies reporting to each DB manually.
Admins make their own determination about what is and is not SPAM.  It could
be used for traps too.
