If the feedback loop complaints are machine parseable, then by
definition a machine can parse the abuse mail stream and separate out
the feedback loop complaints for automated handling before sending the
rest to the human team.

I think the implied point here is that this can be a LOT of mail and
that obtaining the recipient's consent is desirable before sending them
this volume of mail? If so, I think that's a fair point. On the other
hand, the complaints are in response to messages their network sent in
the first place.
