IMHO, It is alright as it is.
I have been using git for 4~ years now, and I still find very useful
those lines. They are like a git status while committing, and it's the
key to avoid accidental commits of objects or forgetting files in a
commit. Between that and that the commit message can't be empty, I can
abort a commit and correct the staging area.
