  I think this is a fine idea -- it is more robust, because it does not depend on getting the commit syntax right, but on knowing the right place. It also means commit messages (for developers, one per commit) don't have to do double duty as release notes (for users, one per functional change).
  When this patch is accepted, one could make this policy visible by adding an "Update release notes" section to the https://www.mercurial-scm.org/wiki/ContributingChanges checklist.
