IMO that's fine for now, maybe someone will write a wrapper around
git format-patch to auto-generate the correct headers while still keeping
those needed for compatibity with git am / send-email.
Are those patches in that format because you took them from the upstream
git repository or because using this format from the start lets upstream
pick it up easily?
