FWIW, this was my original proposal with a few more tags (Reviewed-By,
Signed-off-by, etc.) because it potentially has far less friction than
dropping the ChangeLog completely.
In fact it remains a fallback plan for me if the review for the current
proposed script takes too long. I picked up 2.29 release management
with the express intention of getting rid of the ChangeLog file, so I
want to make sure that it happens in the next couple of months :)
