Why not have it in both places?  This is really important.

I'm concerned that noone is taking this security risk seriously.  Just
because it doesn't show up in certain workflows doesn't make the risk
go away.

What about all the people who use git internally?  They aren't using
github and almost certainly aren't using a mail based system.

It's bad that we can't even set the right behaviour as a default.
