In theory, it's certainly nice to have it documented. In practice,
it problably takes more effort than it's really worth. In most cases,
such summaries are only helpful if the AM goes missing - but obviously
there are no such summaries in that case. In general, the summaries
are helpful if an application takes a long time and I'm wondering
what's going on - but in that case it's usually just quicker to ask
the AM on IRC or to send an e-mail.
I do tend to comment things in the FD&DAM comments field, but usually
only when I'm waiting for the applicant to do things which can often
take months, and hence its helpful to aid my memory.
