Yes, I believe it makes sense to display the diff in this case, as we
can remove it later programmatically.

Yes, I do not use that for submitting, but for shelving. I can run
git p4 submit --prepare-p4-only followed by p4 shelve -i < /tmp/...
and perforce will shelve the corresponding change.
Removing the diff could be done externally, however git-p4 itself
tells the user it can submit using the generated file, which is
not the case if we keep the diff in it.
