AFAIK this was changed by David K recently to make some internal stuff
more consistent. (i think it's commit

I don't have an opinion about the change, but i have one suggestion:
it would be much better if objections like this were raised during
patch review.  So, please look at the review issue of this commit and
tell us what would make it easier for you to comment on it during
review instead of now.  I believe that we should adjust our policies
to encourage people like you (i.e. people who aren't core developers)
to review patches (for example from the User Interface point of view).
