I think people put other things in, too. For example, cross-referencing bug-tracker ids. In fact, if I saw "fixes: XXX", I would expect the latter to be a tracker id. People do this a lot with GitHub issues, because GitHub will auto-close issue 123 if a commit with "fixes #123" is pushed to master. Because of the "#", no pseudo-header is needed, but I have also seen people use the footer style (I don't have any examples on-hand, though). That being said, in your examples: > So why not support these use-cases?
