There are already settings for being less strict with suffix parsing,
see config-option "subject_suffix_parsing" which, by default, is set to
"strict". Our tracker probably has the default of "strict". I think
setting this to "loose" will already do what you want?

# Controls the parsing of the [suffix] on subject
# lines in incoming emails. "strict" will return an
# error to the sender if the [suffix] is not recognised.
# "loose" will attempt to parse the [suffix] but just
# pass it through as part of the issue title if not
# recognised. "none" will always pass any [suffix]
# through as part of the issue title.
# Default: strict
subject_suffix_parsing = strict
