Would it be helpful to say that From: can be an alias for Author: and
Subject: an alias for Description:?

git format-patch alone will stil not be enough to generate a DEP3-compliant
header but would that resolve your concerns?

Is that really better over (auto-)duplicating those fields when needed?

Anyway, I'd rather wait some time until people have tried using this
format before deciding if we must make some special case due to
git format-patch.
