For the purposes of check-attr and check-ignore, a single "-z"
governing both is sufficient.  I think you already got that from my
4-patch series, but the core reason for that is :

 - when "-z" is used, the user knows the input paths may need
   protection against LF.

 - our output contains these same paths.

 - which means our output cannot be expressed unambiguously using LF
   as record separator.

For the purpose of check-mailmap, I actually do not see much point
in supporting "-z" format.  We do not even handle names or addresses
with LF in it.  The mailmap format would not let you express such
records in the first place, no?
