Using a mailto link with the address in clear text is a very bad idea. Even if I have Spamassasin on the server and Bayesian filtering in Mozilla, I don't want to get more spam.

Reducing SPAM starts with reducing e-mail address exposure ;)
#3 Possible approach

Full ACK. A good solution would be to use the same technique as the http://mozdev.org/contact.html page, i.e. randomly encode some (but not all) characters with % notation. If you expand this to the mailto: part, spambots will have face some difficulties...

Future status reports will not link to email addresses. They will instead link to project members pages, e.g. http://<projectname>.mozdev.org/, or to a specific contact page if one exists for a project.
