Yes. But the "contact" keyword will be overriden when you get mails that
can be classified more precisely (like DAK or BTS mails).

That said while it is possible to use <source>@packages.debian.org email
addresses in Maintainer fields it hat not been "validated" yet and you
will likely see multiple problems. Some of them have been identified
already (see Mehdi's mail in this thread) but I expect more of them to
show up (in particular duplicate mails and misclassified mails). IOW,
further work is needed here.
