You can drop these lines; they are redundant with your email's headers
(but see below for more email tips).

It's nice to give a pointer to more discussion, but it's also a good
idea to give a one- or two-sentence summary. Something like (after your
first paragraph):

  We add those ANSI sequences to help format sideband data on the user's
  terminal. However, these extensions are not using a terminal, and the
  sequences just confuse them. We can recognize this use by checking

I was nodding my head in agreement at this, and then went back and
realized that it is paraphrasing me. So I definitely agree with it. :)

A minor nit, but please keep these "trailers" together in a single
paragraph. Elsewhere on the list people are developing tools to write
and parse them, and I believe that they only look backwards up to the
last empty line.

Your patch looks whitespace damaged. It was also sent as a
multipart/alternative with html, which I suspect means it did not make
it to the list. It looks like you're using gmail. The simplest thing is
to just use git-send-email to send it; there are tips for configuring
send-email with gmail in "git help send-email".
