I don't have any opinion about the subject at hand, except that making
a consistent convention and documenting it somewhere to avoid future
churn sounds like a fine idea.

Instead, I'm writing for a procedural nitpick ;-): please move the
above rationale to one of the commit messages, so it gets recorded
somewhere that future readers can easily find it.

Hope that helps,
