Actually `message-mail` isn't a "notmuch mail composition window" but
rather a "mail composition window" implemented in message.el which is a
part of Emacs.  Even more, it is the default "mail composition window"
in Emacs because the default value of `mail-user-agent`, as defined in
simple.el, is `message-user-agent` (since Emacs 23.3 as described in a
comment in `compose-mail` function therein) which causes to be launched by
`compose-mail`.

TL;DR with the mail-user-agent variable set to the default value nothing
      changes for a notmuch user.

It wasn't my intention. I wasn't even sure I should add to NEWS anything
at all but the "Contributing" page says to update NEWS if a change is
user visible. Considering what I wrote above, do you think it is visible?
